    This has shown for the first time that human muscles possess a ‘memory’ of earlier growth - at the DNA level. Periods of skeletal muscle growth are ‘remembered’ by the genes in the muscle, helping them to grow larger later in life. And also related to this there is some research which says Epigenetic modifications are heritable so will pass them onto your offspring. There was a study on obese men who undergo weight loss surgery and how the weight loss affects their sperm's epigenetics.

    Saw this the other day. Good to verify it in literature. Next is the animus.

    Interesting. I am really against steroids in sports (that's a discussion of its own), but this makes me think why wouldn't they subscribe steroids to huge fatties? I mean, while there are massive health risks with steroid use, if they are used in moderation, they can't be worse than being morbidly obese can they?
