Obesity ‘sucks’, so time for ‘effective’ action – shut the fast-food shops?

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know what is the root cause of obesity, do you? No, it is self evident because being overweight, being fat, being obese, just results from eating too much for your body’s particular energy needs. This has become a major health problem even in less populous places, […]

“Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus” – balderdash?

Many of us know of the phrase about men being from Mars and women from Venus, and ‘get’ the basic message that the sexes are a bit different, don’t we? However, many ignorant or discriminatory others take it a bit further than that – or to be more accurate they take the differences between men […]

The scientific community’s naive attempts to contact alien life in the Universe continues unabated – a gaggle of idiots intent on destroying mankind?

The giant Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico is the second-largest radio telescope of its kind on Earth Darth Vader  Daleks Flying saucer You probably have heard that various scientists have been trying to communicate with aliens for over half a century now – it is likely that it first started with a space experiment by […]

The bright future offered to the next generation – vape yourself into addiction and possible death?

If there was any doubt in your mind about our MPs at Westminster being a total waste of space and a brainless bunch, they have certainly dispelled it last week with their announcement that ‘vaping’ should become the acceptable face of smoking, and indeed funded by us taxpayers. The gaggle of village idiots who have […]

The so-called ‘Health Lobby’ is under attack – but NOT by the gutter Press?

  It was of some surprise last Sunday, to read in a respected broadsheet newspaper, a major article attacking the Governments (some would say weak?) attempts to curtail the food industry’s continued flooding of Britain with unnecessarily over-sugared food and drink. It is hardly the responsible action of a major quality newspaper, to publish a […]

‘England a Nation of Shopkeepers’ – replaced by ‘Britain a Nation of Gluttony & Sloth’?

The UK is the Leader in Europe once again! Shame on us all! We are officially the most obese country in western Europe. [Obesity has tripled here over past 30 years, for god’s sake].

          Just 2 years ago a post here ‘Charity, Overseas Aid, Volunteering – all worth it or not?’ outlined and identified how the major charities had simply become major cash-cow “businesses”, run and staffed by fat-cats each raking in hundreds of thousands of pounds in salaries, expenses and accommodation costs, from the over-generous British […]

Research into Alzheimer’s has stalled – is that the end of all hope?

It will not have escaped the notice of all elderly people and their families that after some twenty years of significant involvement, the world’s biggest drug company Pitzer has just 10 days ago announced terminating its research into dementia and Alzheimer’s, and has also pulled the plug on its work on Parkinson’s, as well, which […]

Obesity in Children – disgraceful parental neglect?

This is a follow-up post to that titled ”Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?” which was published here last week. Those who have read the earlier post would know about the disastrous course for the Planet that mankind is set on regarding overpopulating it and into the bargain […]

Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?

  There can be no doubt about it in anyone’s mind can there? There is an epidemic of obesity sweeping the World that is threatening our human existence with extinction and indeed survival of this very planet, isn’t there?
