Extract from the Telegraph:
"British scientists say they use up more fuel to transport them around and the amount of food they eat requires more energy to produce than that consumed by those on smaller diets.
According to a team at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine this adds to food shortages and higher energy prices.
Researchers Phil Edwards said: “We are all becoming heavier and it is a global responsibility. Obesity is a key part of the big picture.""
There are more and more fat people because they are given the wrong information about the causes of obesity and the safe, reliable way to reduce it. - Obesity is not caused by overeating; it is caused by salt sensitivity leading to fluid retention and thence to weight gain, and obesity is easily and swiftly reduced by eating less salt and salty food. - Slim people are not slim because they eat less than fat people (often they eat far, far more than fat people). They are slim because they are not sensitive to salt.
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!Obesity and the Salt Connection
