10 Reasons for Obesity - Air Conditioning and Fewer Smokers Given as Reasons - Fat People Mating with Fat People Another Cause

Air Conditioner

Researchers from the University of Alabama at Birmingham have come up with 10 reasons for obesity. Diet and exercise are important, but there are other unexpected obesity factors according to David B. Allison.

The number one reason on the list is (1) inadequate sleep.  According to new research, lack of sleep can cause weight gain and that chronic sleep deprivation boosts appetite and eating.  Allison says (2) endocrine disruptor substances, found in foods, pesticides, plastics and some drugs that may alter fats in the body, can lead to obesity. 

The third reason is air conditioning (3).  People who work in air-conditioned offices burn fewer calories and may become fatter.  Allison also says that the increased number of Hispanics (4) has caused the obesity numbers to go up. 


Here are the other reasons for obesity:

(5) There are fewer people smoking.

(6) Mothers are giving birth at an older age.  This increases the chance for obesity.

(7) Genetic influences during pregnancy. 


(8) Darwinian natural selection

(9) Fat people mating with fat people can lead to obesity in their kids. 

(10) Overeating and lack of exercise.

Recently 20/20 had a program that suggests a reason not given above.  People are sitting more today than they used to.
