Harvard Law School played host to a lecture by Gary Taubes titled "Why We Get Fat."
The talk said that obesity may be largely caused by an emphasis on certain carbohydrates, rather than the National Institute of Health's claim that weight gain is simply due to consuming more calories than burned. You know, just that silly claim that is backed up by junk science like the Law of Conservation of Mass and Energy.
Apparently Harvard has a Food Law Society. Who knew?
