I read with great interest the article by Dr Duraccio and the review on obesity and adolescence. The analysis discussed and the reflections reported are very interesting and relevant.1

An aspect that has not been taken into consideration to find reasons for this epidemic of obesity, is the adaptation of the respiratory diaphragm muscle and its systemic relationships.
