How? Brown fat.
What is brown fat? According to a number of recent studies, it’s a kind of fat whose only purpose is to burn away other kinds of fat by producing heat. Brown fat cells aren’t hooked up to anything in particular, but they process tissue into ATP and then just let it rip.

Originally, this was a way for cavebabies to survive harsh nature and mothers who probably left them in snowbanks for hours at a time without really thinking it was a thing.

Nowadays, it turns out, humans have more brown fat than ever. And scientists theorize that the reason is that our bodies are slowly evolving to combat the current greatest threat to our species: obesity. That’s right folks: WE’RE SUCH FATASSES THAT OUR BODIES ARE EVOLVING TO COMPENSATE FOR IT.

So basically, we are evolving to fight obesity, which, in other words means America is evolving faster than you. Once again proving our superiority

USA sucks, Portugal roxs
After all you fell in love with death,
Life has aborted.
All you've had and all you became,
The night is calling, you pray forth.

Wow, got in there quick. I hope you're joking or have some damn good evidence, because I've got the scientific community here and they disagree.

I read stuff about Brown Fat in New Scientist a couple of months ago. It's weird stuff.

wait...couldn't this also be because we no longer need large stores of fat in our bodies because we no longer live in caves and leave our babies in snow banks?

Seeing as how evolution works over thousands of years...and america's obesity has only be around ..what...60 years? not even.

Funny read though.

I spoke to God last night, and he told me that burying all those fossils was much more hard work than making the coastline of Norway.

Really?
Then surely African-Americans are the only truly evolved form of the Humans, since they've been traded the most?

Right so evolution has changed our matabolism in like, i dunno 70 years.

So evolution now cuts out the boring shit and makes big changes over one generation...nice.
