Do you believe obessity spreads socially? I tend to agree, 10 years ago, a group of young men at a Universiy used to live together, doing the same course-most of finsished university and got good jobs in the public sector-recent I met 4 of them and they all looked obessed, what do you think?

Hello dear friend. I think that that it may be that those guys living in the same apartment happened to like the same food containing stuff that made them obese?

I think it could spread socially also because you tend to do what the people you are hanging around are doing. Some people choose to do the opposite though.
