Obesity and salt

by plainspeak

Why are Indians more obese than people from other countries. One of my classmates said the some one had proposed that a virus could be causing Obesity. Today, a thought occurred to me all of a sudden when I was eating Jamun(Nerlennu in Kannada) fruit with salt, that maybe salt was the reason. As someone said, “Correlation doesn’t mean causality”. And, when i searched for “Obesity and salt” on Google, I found several results. So, the idea was already there before. Chehh. It’s tough to get a new idea these days.
