    well no sht.. they're too fat to get any girls and too lazy to chase em around!

    it all starts with formula as a baby.. it stretches their stomach, messes up their intestines, etc.

    then you add video games and facebook and not being active..

    it's gonna be like Wall-E.

    It's pretty well documented that adipose tissue a primary source of aromatase in males, which converts testosterone to estrogen, so I don't know why this came as a surprise to researchers. Age and diabetes status won't change the fact that a person is fat, and being fat = more aromatase in that individual. That the drop is 50%, I'll give them that - that's staggering!
