The rise in obesity is the predictable result of the rise in manufactured deliciousness. Everything we add to food just makes us want it more. And no matter how hard we try, we can't make our outsized desires go away.

But remember the children...The percentage of slender Americans will gradually work its way down to zero.

Nutrition matters for everybody, but you can't major in it at Harvard. Most top scientists go into other fields. Most of the big studies were done 30 or 40 years ago, and most are seriously flawed.

There's plenty more to learn: we know more about the physics of faraway stars than we know about human nutrition. It won't be easy, but it's not obviously impossible: exactly the kind of field that could yield secrets.Peter Thiel Obesity Epidemic Sayings By Peter Thiel: Nutrition matters for everybody, but you can't major in it at Harvard.
