According to UK Health Secretary Alan Johnson, that’s a “potential health crisis on the scale of climate change.”
For real. He said that.
The article ends, of course, with the hoary old, “This generation of kids won’t outlive their parents!” panic. Um, is someone eventually going to tip the anti-obesity crusaders off to the fact that we’re actually living longer than ever before? ‘Cause that one’s getting pretty fucking tired.
And so am I. Obesity is as big a public health crisis as climate change, y’all.
At least they’re not blaming us for it this week. That’s something, I guess.
