Finally: Scientists Explain Michael Moore's Behavior

The headline of the article is -- and I quote -- "Fatty diet damages brain - study."

SCIENTISTS have found a high-fat diet damages a crucial region of the brain that controls body weight in rodents and believe a similar process may occur in obese humans.

Within 24 hours of being fed high-fat foods, rats and mice developed inflammation followed by scarring in the hypothalamus, a region that regulates body weight and food intake in humans and rodents. Animals fed the diet continuously for four weeks developed chronic inflammation and neuron loss.

Rosie O'Donnell could not be reached for comment at press time either.
