It's fair to say that the Athenians made the world we live in today possible.

The Secret Life of Fat: The Science Behind the Body's Least Understood Organ and What It Means To You
"Though we furiously fight fat through dieting (to the tune of $60 billion a year in the United States alone), it's essential to our well being. It affects brain size, supports our reproductive and immune systems, and is so important to the body's self defense that fat can grow back no matter what we eat. Biochemist Sylvia Tara identifies fat as an endocrine organ and argues that knowing how it functions will go a long way toward keeping us healthy." (Library Journal)
