The more O2 that enter, the more energy a person will have.


Do you even know what the topic is about? Your replies have nothing to do with what anyone has said. They're not even remotely related to the topic.

 This Greenhouse crap is going to far. we're trying to make up excuses while here in the States that we're having an obesity problem while other countries like for example," Jamaica" that breathing in more CO2 because it in a part of the world that the humidity is very high, isn't having any fat issues. It seem like everyone is trying to put blame on the natural events that been going in the past decades, but over-looking the facts that's in front of their faces.

You mean you have a problem with scientific facts. That's apparent.


we're trying to make up excuses....


No one here made any excuses. This is simple science. I am at a loss as to why you cannot understand it.

What part of the hypothesis or what the authors did is science? They proposed a hypothesis that they did not attempt to falsify but, instead, performed a non-blind, uncontrolled experiment in which 3 of 6 people were exposed to CO2 concentrations many orders of magnitude greater than normal air, and didn’t get statistically significant results. Then they proposed useless, unscientific animal-model experiments, the results of which they acknowledge will not determine anything about their hypothesis concerning the recent obesity epidemic seen among humans in some societies. Where’s the science in any of that?

All of it. You just don't like what they found.

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.




There is other way to deal with. Being a greener peolpe, making the Earth more green. If he, she, and it make steps all together, I think we can breathe cleaner air.
