I am not saying that any of these programs are a bad thing, only that they seem to go against the idea of traits being selected by nature to be advantageous and thus ensuring survival.
natural selection is going on now through subconcious and hormonal response, men (generally are attracted to curvy women) not just physically but subconciously this makes them better at carrying children there is a talk about it somewhere on internet.
