    I realize that this is a study on moose and other animals, but it certainly seems to pertain to all mammals, including humans. When I see the diet of most children and teenagers, so lacking in proper nutrition, based on soda and junk food, I predict even more disease for them, as we have seen with diabetes. Why not other diseases such as OA, early onset of osteoporosis, heart disease, etc. The moose have no choice, but people do have a choice.
