That article is over a year old?
Why is it that every time there is an obesity article in the news we have to see a picture of someone's disgusting bloated stomach?
Maybe it's a help for people to lose weight? But yeah, the article is ALMOST a year old.
Yes, they're contributing to global warming by using more fuel, but then, business people who use their mobile phone and charge it twice a day are doing the same. Everyone contributes to climate change, so the fact that obesely overweight people do also is in someways assumed without reasoning.
Contributing to the food crisis? Sure, but so are people who eat lots and don't put weight on as easily - those with high metabolism, but there's no BBC News article on those people, is there?
I'm not overweight, and I'll make sure I'm not overweight, but can we stop blaming overweight people for pointless little things that everyone else is also responsible for? It's getting to be like blaming computer games for the violence and killings around the world.
Ever been sandwiched between two fat people on a plane? They will be the downfall of us all!
i hate fat people..
lose some damn weight!
