Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article regarding a study on obesity. Researchers looked at differences between body temperatures of lean dogs compared to obese dogs. Finding the obese dogs had lower body temperatures leading the study authors to believe that the obese dogs were expending less energy to stay warm. Doc disagrees and contends that weight gain and obestiy are the result of nutritional deficiencies.
