Article in the Telegraph
"For many film fans it is already an animated movie classic, a charming tale of a robot driven by the need to clean up earth after thoughtless humans and his search for the girl he loves.
WALL-E has garnered rave reviews for its satire on consumer culture, in which future humans are depicted as a group of obese gluttons who never leave their padded floating arm chairs.
But one group is not amused - the swelling ranks of fat pride groups, who believe the film propagates anti-obesity hysteria comparable with the quest for the perfect body by the eugenics movement in Nazi Germany.
The backlash has become a cause celebre for a growth industry in the United States, where pro-flab "fat-tivists" are campaigning for human rights for the full of figure."
Well the ignorant/inadequate/uninformed/prejudiced slim people who feel the need to insult and bully and be sarcastic about fat people are wrong. - It is not gluttony and laziness that causes people to become fat; it is salt sensitivity/fluid retention/water retention/sodium retention that is the cause. - And the remedy is to tell the truth about how to reduce excess weight, i.e. by avoiding salt and salty food, NOT BY DIETING AND TRYING TO DO STRENUOUS EXERCISE THAT CAN BE HAZARDOUS AND EXTREMELY TIRING FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE OVERWEIGHT/OBESE/FAT.
And as far as human rights are concerned, people should have the human right to be given the facts about the causes of obesity and how to prevent/reduce it.
WHEN is the truth going to be told about obesity?

All that is necessary to curb the growing incidence of obesity is to tell the truth about what causes it! - Obesity is NOT caused by overeating. It is caused by fluid retention, frequently because of taking prescribed medications, especially steroids such as prednisolone, prednisone and HRT, and anti-depressants such as amitriptyline. (When doctors prescribe drugs that cause sodium retention and water retention they should warn the patient not to eat salt, or food containing salt, while taking the medication. When they do not give this warning, the inevitable consequence is considerable weight gain.)

Obesity can be easily reduced by seriously reducing your salt/sodium intake and eating plenty of fruit and fresh vegetables. - It is important not to restrict calories. - 'Slimming' or 'dieting' is unnecessary, ineffective and often harmful.
Lose weight by eating less salt! Go on! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
