US taxpayers pay $3.5 mln to study lesbians' obesity

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has conducted a research to find out how the sexual orientation influences the body build.

The US taxpayers have already paid $3.5 million for the 'significant' project, and it is to last till June 30.

"Sexual Orientation and Obesity: A Test of a Gendered Biopsychosocial Model," seeks to determine why there is a disparity in the obesity rates between straight women and lesbian women and straight men and gay men.

According to the study, "It is now well-established that women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic, with nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese, compared to half of heterosexual women. In stark contrast, among men, heterosexual males have nearly double the risk of obesity compared to gay males."

Meanwhile, the US government debt is going to beat 'records' of WWII.
