Overweight People Better at Smelling Food

According to a new study, overweight people have "far heightened" senses of smell for food compared with people who aren't overweight—in particular after eating a full meal. Science: Making the mean joke so you don't have to!

I guess hating on fat people is something that science has in common with nature.

Its funny because its true. I can smell food and other smells that no one can smell until they get much closer. Science, why must you be so deliciously cruel? ....hey, i smell cookies.

Hmmm I wonder how overweight you need to be for this to be true? I don't really have a heightened sense of smell... But I have a heightened sense of taste.
