Bring on the meat pies, and the KFC!!!

This should piss off the Greens.
A survey from Japan shows chubby peoople live longer.
Health experts have long warned of the risk of obesity, but a new Japanese study warns that being very skinny is even more dangerous, and that slightly chubby people live longer.
People who are a little overweight at age 40 live six to seven years longer than very thin people, whose average
life expectancy was shorter by some five years than that of obese people, the study found.
So ignore the nannying, do what you want.
And bring on the pies and the KFC.
I would if we had KFC in Kerikeri, but instead I am having fish and chips for dinner!

There is big, big money in making us believe that we need to lose weight. Not just the obvious companies like Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers, but a lot of 'health professionals' also have a buck to earn through peddling half-truths and outright lies.

Check out for a professional researcher's point of view... and read the 'obesity paradox' series of posts for information on how overweight and obese people do actually live longer and cost the health services LESS that so called 'normal weight' people.

This is the biggest scandal going - right up there with 'global warming'.

I guess this gives a whole new meaning and difference to those people who "eat to live" and those who "live to eat."

I, on the other, would go back to playing my wow account, guzzle some Mtn Dew and stuff my face with cold pizza.
