    Meanwhile Ebikes now outsell bikes in the Netherlands .. and their obesity rate remains 12% compared to 38% in the USA, and one of the lowest in EU (and the World)

    BMI in the US is actually trending down. As for correlations, it is important to remember that it is equally safe to jump out of an airplane with a parachute as it is to jump out of an airplane with an empty backpack.

    I agree. Jumping out of planes is usually safe and uneventful. Itís the way that you stick the landing that can have varied results.
