I would think cultural. Americans are fatter than people from other countries, on average, so why might they not be more violent?

I would think fat people are more relaxed, laid back, content, they enjoy live and eating - they should be less violent....

Lead linked to violent crime

...this is lead in the air, not lead bullets flying around?

I would expect that may be a correlation between atmospheric lead and violence, but not causation. For example, let's say that poorer areas have higher atmospheric lead contamination, and it is the poverty causing the greater violence, not the lead content of the air.

Yes correlation does not necessary mean causation...
