Anyone who thinks otherwise should ask themselves if the sudden increase in obesity in recent decades is due to either:
(i) A sudden change in the gene pool in the last 50 years, after thousands of years of slow evolution
(ii) People eating too much trashy food and exercising less
How is this even important? The point is that morbid obesity is an underlying condition, self-inflicted or not.

Maybe we should investigate if people with liver problems have not been excessive drinkers.

This is like a flashback to the HIV epidemic. Who's at fault because of unprotected sex (or even for being gay) and who isn't because of a blood transfusion.
