Last week's mag berated boffins for the junk science they peddle to less high-brow publications than this.

But at least this research comes from some sort of science, unlike the latest findings that "fat people are contributing to the world food crisis because of the amount they eat". So say researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Apparently, obese people consume 18% more calories than average - ergo they boost demand for food and push up prices. Simple really. So nothing to do with a switch to biofuel production, growth in the world's population, changing weather patterns, and the huge amount of food we waste every year, then?
