By Harry @web_pensioner
type102Another report on the news and papers about obesity and its effects has just been aired. People do see and read about this, they also hear about it continually but they choose to ignore it.

I cannot understand anyone for what ever reason why they ignore the warnings about their own health and how it will effect their family.

BBC Report

From the age of six or seven people are obese, stuffing their faces with all the bad things that make you obese. When they are told they are ill and have to loose four to six stone, they will probably say i have tried and i can’t do it.

No you have not you moron, if you did you would not be as fat.

A survey published in 2012 found that just over a quarter of all adults (26%) in England are obese. A further 41% of men and 33% of women are classed as overweight.

Chairman Prof David Haslam said the crisis could get even worse than the “doomsday scenario” already set out.

The report stated: “It is entirely reasonable to conclude that the determinations of the 2007 Foresight Report, while shocking at the time, may now underestimate the scale of the problem.”

The forum called for GPs to protectively discuss weight management with patients, and routinely measure children’s height and weight and adults’ waist size, it added.
