autolycus BS: UK women are 'fattest in Europe' (112* d) RE: BS: UK women are 'fattest in Europe' 27 Nov 11

"People need to be given advice on how to eat a healthier, balanced diet"

I wish that were part of the story but in the first place there's a mountain of such advice all over the place; and in the second place, very many people resent being given advice, and want to be left alone. So, for them the mountain, not to mention the innumerable services freely available are useless. We hardly want to force anybody.


Reading thru again, I don't see anyone referring to degeneracy. I see one ridiculous caricature which amounts to some people are unintelligent and lazy, and there without doubt some connections between mental health [I'd prefer 'psychological] problems and poor diet via compensation [comfort eating].

But no degeneracy. Nor that anyone is less than human.

I do see some familiar over-egging, emotionally-charged language.


It simply does not follow that because obesity may rise as educational levels fall, and vice versa, that educational levels are low and thus higher elsewhere.
