More Evidence Chemicals Linked to Obesity and Diabetes, Group Says

"Animal studies found that exposure to even tiny amounts of endocrine disrupting chemicals during the prenatal period can trigger obesity later in life. Similarly, animal studies found that some endocrine disrupting chemical s directly target beta and alpha cells in the pancreas, fat cells, and liver cells. This can lead to insulin resistance and an overabundance of the hormone insulin in the body - risk factors for Type 2 diabetes."

I wonder if this explains why some people are gender confused too.  The endocrine system has many functions.

Apparently these disrupters are numerous and in our everyday environments, including food, cleaning products, household dust, personal products and household items like shower curtains.
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but the citizens capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.

Excellent observation, Dori!  I never thought of that before but it makes sense.
