Children who have their tonsils removed or suffer ear infections are more likely to be obese when they grow up, researchers claim.
A set of studies appears to show a strong link between a liking for high-fat foods and the damage caused to taste nerves by chronic ear infections and operations to remove tonsils.
Having never had my tonsils removed and having suffered from very few ear infections as a kid, I can’t really comment on this riduculous study. Oh right, I think I just did. Another study to find a ‘reason’ for liking high fat foods other than, say, they taste awesome? Another way to blame your body for something most people have responsibility for?
What do you think? Valid? Or insanity?
