Quote of the day

" Tis not the eating, nor 'tis not the drinking that is to be blamed, but the excess

John Selden (1584-1684)

" The excess of our youth are checks written against our age and they are payable with interest thirty years later"

Charles Caleb Colton (1780-1832)

Study shows predisposition to ‘obesity’ is largely inherited

An authoratitive study indicates that so-called ‘obesity’ is strongly influenced by genetic predisposition. The figure they quote is 77%.

Interesting news that, based on past performance, the Government Health fascists will probably do their best to ignore, or claim proves the exact opposite of what it means.

Also it should be remembered the ‘obesity’ definitions were tweaked to take in more people. Increasing the numbers of officially overweight, or obese, in the US alone by 28 million over night.

This does not mean that, because you are predisposed towards being fatter you will actually be fatter - Just that you will probably have to work much harder at avoiding it than others.

Much what many people have been convinced of for years…
