Not a credible study, but... I have NOT seen that to be the case in my family or among my relatives.
Some people just like to eat faster than others.

Hey Spark -
An interesting conversation has broken out on my activity feed and now it has me wondering - have there been any studies done linking number and type of siblings to the speed at which one consumes food?
We have a theory that brothers, in particular, may lead other siblings to consume food faster out of a fear of competition - like they won't get enough food unless they eat it faster than the "bigger, stronger" sibling.
Any truth to this?
