Extract from Sunday Telegraph:
"A new bill in Mississippi would make it illegal for restaurants to serve obese customers.
The legislation, introduced by three members of the state’s House of Representatives, would allow health inspectors to revoke the licence of any restaurant that "repeatedly" feeds extremely overweight people.
According to the bill, which has been referred to the judiciary and public health committees, the state’s health department would determine the criteria which would then be sent to all restaurants."
" Ted Mayhall, one of the politicians who proposed the bill, said he was hoping to "call attention to the problem"."
This would be cruel - and ineffectual - if it were to become law (though it's very unlikely to become law). - Because obesity is not caused by overeating; it is caused by fluid retention in unfortunate people who are sensitive to salt. - They get hungrier than people who are not overweight because they have a heavier body to carry around and service and that uses up more calories. - Eating less salt reduces the fluid retention, and so avoiding salt and salty food is a fast and reliable way for overweight people to lose weight.
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!vulnerable groups
