I get the gastric band because i can imagine being 38st caused immediate danger to her health but riddle me this. Now she is 20st and tbh I've seen people who look fatter than her working so why are the NHS funding a seemingly non essential operation? Does she have some kind of other medical condition that makes her being obese immediately dangerous?
Don't really know how the NHS works but i would have thought non essential operations (such as liposuction if the person isn't dangerously overweight) are not funded by the tax payer? can anyone clarify?
Diabetes costs the NHS £1,000,000 an HOUR. A lot of this is down to people developing diabetes through being obese. these are the articles the media should be reporting, ones that show the real finanical cost of obesity.
I get it's The Sun and all that so it's probably hyped up to the balls, but nothing annoys me more than fat people who can't take responsibility for making themselves fat, also where the hell are people getting the idea that healthy food is expensive from? As far as I've noticed, unhealthy food is a hell of a lot more expensive.
Everybody gets cravings for unhealthy foods, that doesn't mean you should give in to them every single time
