Does pollution make you fat?

I thought this was interesting:

Polluted air increases obesity risk in young animals

Animals exposed to the fine-particulate air pollution had larger and more fat cells in their abdominal area and higher blood sugar levels than did animals eating the same diet but breathing clean air.

It is not just diet or exercise or stress....the totality of your environment is important to health.....including the air you breathe.

No, it doesn't. I spend a lot of time in Ethiopia, specifically the capital of Addis Ababab. The pollution is the worst I've even been around...and there are not a lot of fat people; only the rich Ethiopians are fat.
