'As a paper in the journal Poultry Science puts it, if humans grew as fast as broilers, “a 6.6 lbs. newborn baby would weigh 660 lbs. after 2 months.”'

So percentage weight isn't a perfect stat for cross species comparisons I understand that but holy shit that's messed up. And it's not like theres no other evidence of this being insanely unhealthy for the species..
