Regular church-goers are not just prone to rapings, it makes you fat (making you unable to run away from your predatory pastor). That's according to a new study from Northwestern University in Chicago. Researchers followed 2,433 young men and women for 18 years in Chicago, Minneapolis, Birmingham, Ala., and Oakland, Calif. The group was tested - at first between 20 and 32 years old - for various cardiovascular disease risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension, and smoking. Those same tests were repeated in the same group over the next 25 years. Those who reported attending church weekly, or more often, were more than twice as likely to become obese than those who do not. Most of the participants were Christians — reflecting the dominant religion in the United States.
