It is a crime and a sin, and above all a dreadful tragedy, that the 'experts' - the medical profession and the nutritionists - are STILL not telling the truth about how obesity is caused and how it is best prevented/reduced. - See my notes that appear after this extract from the Telegraph:
"Steve Ryan, of Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, said "significant numbers" of children aged two and three were being classed as obese. Conditions normally seen in middle age, such as Type 2 diabetes and sleep apnoea, were increasingly common among teenagers, he warned.
Mr Ryan said it is was "almost certain" that surgeons will have to staple children's stomachs within a few years.
At present, weight-loss surgery is only performed on adults when all other methods have failed. Although the procedure can lead to complications, Dr Ryan believes that for some children it will prove the best option."
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
