Four big, fat myths


Author: John Luik
Article Published: 27/11/2006


"Obesity worse than drinking or smoking". "Obesity is a greater threat than weapons of mass destruction". "Obesity is the most serious threat to the future health of our nation". These are just a few examples of how "health advocate" doctors (or so they call them) shoot their mouths with the well-tested alarmist tactics used for smoking and for the passive smoke fraud. Even here these people are conning the public, of course - but governments respond to their misrepresentation of evidence far more than they respond to the truth. A government that forbids, taxes and surveys in the name of health is a "responsible" one.
