And "age related" would mean ``gene related''. Consider the fact that humans
from some parts of the world generally follow the above rule of sudden weight
gain, and that humans from some parts of the planet as a rule don't do this.

But even thin humans will add to their fat layers if the eat lots of fat food
even if the fat disappears when they stop that fat diet.
