There was a piece in the Gaurdian today about the cost of obesity hitting $1.2 trillion world wide by 2025. In Britain it is 19 billion at the moment and it will rise to 31 billion. The chief executive of the NHS, has warned that obesity threatens to bankrupt the NHS. Just really pisses me off, clearly the cuts on the NHS are bad and it needs more funding, but then you see things like this and it really pisses me off. People complain about the NHS’s lack of funding, and the long waits for appointments, well if more people looked after themselves, and just regulated what they ate, then think about how much of a burden would be lifted on the overstretched heath service. Yes people should have free will go eat and do what they like, but where does it stop? Considering the most expensive things in terms of healthcare budget are obesity and smoking related, think it’s too easy to blame government budget cuts rather than take on the blame as a society.
