Testosterone reduces leptin.  Leptin reduces appetite.  Therefore, children of
higher testosterone have less appetite suppression.  It is my hypothesis that
the percentage of individuals of higher testosterone is increasing.  Therefore,
overeating is increasing.  This accounts for the obesity "epidemic" in the U.S.
