TIL obesity can be 'contagious'.
In a study, when a participant's friend became obese, the participant had a 57% greater chance of becoming obese himself. This is when the participant identified the individual as a friend but the other person did not identify the participant as a friend.
When both individuals identified each other as close friends, when one friend became obese the other had a 171% greater chance of becoming obese.
