Sara Sweet: The easy answer is that people gain weight from fried foods is because they're high calorie. Surprise surprise. Genetics has nothing to do with it.

DeliCiousTZM: If you have genes that makes you fat easier, congratz! You are a superior human being that can survive longer in a food scarce environment! Oh right we are searching for genetic casualties that can excuse our gluttony away. Fuck genetics just stop eating so much you fat fuck!

erasmusso: That's unfair! Why do I have to watch every single calorie I eat while my friends can gorge themselves on ice cream?! Come on people, we should fight for equality, let's ban genetics!!!

Fox Mulder: Thanks Elizabeth another great informative video!

We NeedChangeNOW TVP-TZM: You can't look at any biology or genes outside of environment, your genome could not survive on mars when our biology is build for earth.
