It could be according to a study out today.

Here's the link.

Here's a quote:

When he looked around for other factors, he saw how the CO2 concentration of the atmosphere had also increased in correlation to the weight gain.

He now proposed that orexins, a type of hormone which reside in the brain and stimulate wakefulness and energy expenditure, may be affected by CO2.



I guess the conclusion here is that if you want to loose weight; don't breathe.

Oh damn! Even breathing is bad for you!

Pretty sure it's my long love affair with pizza that's making me fat.

The ginormous amounts of CO2 that humans have added to our atmosphere has only increased that love.
