Fat people should not be blamed for their weight, as it is mainly caused by their genes and the prevalence of unhealthy food, the government’s top obesity advisor has said. Susan Jebb, a professor of diet and population health at the University of Oxford, also said that the war on obesity was being hindered by a ‘completely obstructive prejudice against the overweight.’
The professor, who is the senior obesity advisor to Public Health England and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, blamed too easily accessible fast food and snacks. She told The Times: ‘Obesity has increased so greatly over the last few decades. That’s not a national collapse in willpower. It’s something about our environment that has changed. You need in some cases a super human effort to reduce your food intake. Is that their fault? I don’t think it is.’
I find her comments totally irresponsible. No wonder it was slammed by some Conservative MPs who said obese people must take responsibility for their weight. I totally agree. Just observe how large numbers of people eat at least twice what their bodies require to keep fit and trim. In the process, they develop bulging stomachs to put others off eating and look absolutely disgusting. How can anyone say it is not their fault?
Women should stop sleeping with men whose bodies become deformed through their sheer gluttony and men should do the same with oversize women, who practice the dirty habit of compulsive eating.
Two-thirds of the British are now classed as overweight. A study last week claimed that 38% of the population will be obese by 2025, making us the fattest nation in Europe. What an abhorrent sight we will make then. ‘Here come the British Fatsos’ would be the refrain that describes us. Dig that if you can!
