Stick that cheeseburger back into your mouth and get off the treadmill, a new study suggests obese peoples are as healthy as non-obese peoples and are no more susceptible to health problems. In other news, it has been shown today that smoking is really, really, good for you:
ACCEPTED medical wisdom that overweight people are more susceptible to diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure is a myth, a shock new report suggests.Even people who are obese suffer no adverse health effects until they turn 40. The research flies in the face of Government attempts to combat the so-called “obesity timebomb”, which it has been claimed will lead to a generation of youngsters dying before their parents.The new study has led to calls to curb our obsession with dieting. Brant Jarrett, of Ohio State University, one of the researchers, said: “There is a myth going on. Our findings show being overweight is no different from being what we believe is a healthy weight and this is across a person’s entire lifespan.“Don’t worry if you are overweight. What is all that stress and dieting doing to your body? Probably more damage than the extra 15lb.
“Being obese before you are 40 has no correlation to your health either. The risk that people are told about does not exist.”
Overweight peoples are the new smokers. Peoples who know better and ARE better than you and me have done pretty much everything they can do to ostracize smokers, and have now moved on to “help” obese peoples. Actually, they have moved on to save EVERYONE from the evils of cholesterol, trans-fats, sodium, and pop in vending machines.
You don’t even have to be in shape to help those not in shape, as the fat-assed Mayor of Toronto can attest. He’s helped ban soda and chips from vending machines that sit in Toronto ice rinks on gov’t land. Miller, and his pudgy cohorts couldn’t run 50 yards between them, yet they seem to know what’s good and healthy for the citizens of Toronto.
Stress is a proven killer, it’ll get you every single time. But you can’t ban stress. You can, however, ban certain foods.
The whole “obesity epidemic” (like you’re going to catch fatness from a tubby guy) is among one of the top 10 Ten crocks of shit that have been hoisted upon us in the last few years. It ranks right up there with global warning, cap & trade, swine flu shots, etc, etc, etc. “Obesity epidemic” is another looter phrase designed to take our money and our freedoms away. Look at all the cash that goes into these stupid obesity studies, studies that have already been written beforehand. Governments come after us under the guise of “helping”, but the only thing they’re helping to do is reduce the size of our wallets.
If a fat dude wants to eat a Snickers bar and suck it back with a 2L Coke, then go ahead fat dude, you have The Mayor’s blessing. If some butterball broad wants to eat chocolate all day and a caramel drip is hooked up to her arm, then so be it, it’s her life. We, as a society, have absolutely no right to infringe on what others do, as long as they aren’t hurting someone else. If someone wants to harm themselves by eating “improperly” (harm is subjective in this case), then that is their prerogative.
This whole thing is about power. We are all to look the same, talk the same, think the same, and ultimately, vote the same. I can’t believe I live in a day where we are told what we can and can not eat out of a freakin’ vending machine because some nameless, faceless droid says so. Where is our freedom of choice? Decided by the same nameless, faceless droids, obviously.
When any group mounts any opposition to the various schemes the do-gooders are up to, said do-gooders fall back on the old reliable “think about the children” phrase (another looter phrase designed to take our money). Then, that gives the lackeys an excuse to ban soda and chips from school vending machines and replace them with food and drink children would never consider eating or drinking.
These same droids that tell us what we can and cannot eat and drink are the same peoples that insist every child is unique. And to help the children along with their own brand of uniqueness, the droids would love nothing better than to pigeonhole the whole damn lot of children into a bunch of conformist no-thinkers.
Live the life you want and fight back against those that say you should be living as they do.They are the enemy and must be taught a lesson. Your life is your life, their life is crap. Screw them. Fight them. Make them pay for their bad behaviour.
