You and Taye are discussing the causes of obesity. As an informed person, you have to disagree with your friend when he asserts that a major factor in obesity is
A. Gender B. physiology C. environment D. genetic inheritance

  • Psychology -

    I am quite uncertain what you mean by B. How can the a science be the cause of obesity? Physiology is the science of the functioning of living systems. Being a scientist wont make you obese.

    On answer A, while more women are obese than men, more men are overweight,and men tend to be at more risk of heart disease from it.

  • Psychology -

    Since gender probably includes the the physical aspects of gender and the social aspects of gender are covered by environment, I would pick A. (Of course, the XX and XY are included in the genetic inheritance.)

    I hope this helps a little more.
