Food Fascists Spread Fear and Panic About The Obesity Pandemic
In another of our consciousness raising initiatives Greenteeth, the parent company of The Daily Stirrer, Little Nicky Machiavelli and Boggart Blog has created the Golden Orwell Awards. Today we award the Golden Orwells to Doctors, The NHS and the British Medical Association for their services to fascism in bending the truth about the health threats posed by obseity, alcohol and lack of exercise. We suggest the risks are not as great as will be posed by doctors withdrawing threwatment from those who do not obey.
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984?
Who qualifies for a Golden Orwell? Those public servants who constantly pump out misleading or downright false information aimed at spreading fear and panic in order to convince us we are all infantile poltroons who could not survive more than a few hours without the constant protection of Nanny State and the idle, gutless media droids who repeat the lie until it becomes accepted as truth.
Like William Leith in the Daily Smellygraph for example. Take a look at this fine piece of journalistic regurgitating of government bullshit from said writer: "We're All Feckless Losers In The Fight On Fat". he begins, "Something terrible is happening to our bodies. In the UK, in 2012, one in four adults is obese. That’s right – obese. What does this mean? It means that one in four of us is walking around – or, more accurately, shuffling or waddling about – with great slabs of wobbly flesh hanging off us.
This is bullshit on speed. There are more fat people than there were, say 50 years ago, many more. There are also less grey and ghostly figures shuffling round the streets coughing blood up because their lungs have been rotted by the industrial fumes they spent a lifetime inhaling because they needed to make a living. But one in four?
but ii is not just sensationalist journalism, the increasingly fascistic politically correct left are on your case as well. According to the Observer Sunday Newspaper, more than half of Britain’s doctors ‘support measures to deny treatment to smokers and obese people, according to a survey that has sparked a row over the NHS’s growing use of “lifestyle rationing”’. That summary is actually a bit misleading, but it is true that health bureaucrats and many doctors are now determined expend more effort on telling us how we should be living our lives and bullying us into compliance by threatening to withdraw medical treatment if we don’t obey their diktat.
The Observer story comes from a survey on Doctors.net.uk, to which just over 1,000 of the website’s members responded. Of these 54 per cent agreed that doctors ‘should have the right to refuse non-emergency treatment to patients unless they lose weight or stop smoking when
ordered advised to. The question put to website members did not, however, specify the basis on which doctors might decide to refuse treatment. It isn’t hard to imagine a situation in which a doctor might refuse treatment on strictly clinical grounds – for example, if a patient were massively overweight, a hip replacement might not make much sense – but the results don’t tell us if doctors supporting the proposition are basing their opinion on clinical advisability or on a desire to become little lifestyle Hitlers.
My experience, a close brush with death thanks to a doctor who prefered to lecture me on lifestyle (that of a stereotype rather than mine) instead of working to diagnose a rare and dangerous if not treated, but easily controlled condition, suggests the Hitler syndrome has been around a long time.
The article accompanying the poll makes it clear that the debateis a hot topic among doctors. So one doctor, commenting on the Doctors.co.uk website, said he had ‘no grouse’ with the NHS refusing treatment under certain circumstances. Other doctors, however, can thankfully see the logical outcome of such an outlook. One said: ‘By extension, should we refuse treatment to those who do not exercise enough, do not eat their five a day, or who drink alcohol? If a rugby player breaks their finger, should we refuse to treat them because they should not have taken the risk involved in playing? People make lifestyle choices and who are we to withhold care as a result?’
While the debate continues amongst medics, the reality in primary-care trusts (PCTs) is that many patients are already being refused treatment on the grounds that they smoke, drink or are too fat. In March, another medical magazine, Pulse, published the results of 91 freedom-of-information (FOI) requests to primary-care trusts. Twenty-five of the trusts had some kind of lifestyle or bodyweight restrictions in place. Some of these were about eligibility guidelines, not lifestyle change. For example, Bury PCT in north-west England rations bariatric surgery (to reduce weight) to those who are very overweight. Such surgery will only be performed on patients with a body-mass index (BMI) of at least 45 - equivalent to being 10 stone overweight for a man of average height.
Other PCT measures sound like clinical guidelines but are no doubt motivated by a desire to find excuses to ration treatment. Hampshire PCT will not perform hip and knee replacements on patients with a BMI over 35. That’s well into the ‘obese’ category, but it really isn’t that heavy at all. Such surgery would undoubtedly succeed in many such patients and substantially improve their quality of life, even if the success rate is lower than for lighter patients.
When I drive through Accrington, a mostly working class community, there are usually a few overweight people around, some grossly overweight actually, but one in four obese? No way. Let's remind ourselves what obese means. From the Oxfpord English Dictionary: Obese - having excessive body fat, grossly overweight.
OK, excessive fat, grossly overweight, not "a tad on the podgy side."
Ah but we must remember the people who now define the word obese for us are World Health Organisation, the same self serving charlatans who, when they were trying to sell us Swine Flu vaccine on behalf of their mates Big Pharma changed the definition of "pandemic" from "millions of people will be seriously ill and hundreds of thousands will die all around the world" to "a few people here and there will feel a bit poorly."
Thus, as far as the statistics obsessed WHO scientists are concerned the only measure of obesity is the discredited Body Mass Index which makes it possible to be both ripped and obese at the same time (Because lean muscle weighs much heavier than the equivalent volume of fat.)
So outside of the Daily Smellygraph, government offices (where getting a bit of work done would help a lot but would go totally against the public sector ethic), the nurses rest room at National Health Service hospitals, official publications, fake charities that see money to be had promoting the latest health scare and in the minds of medical scientists where can we see this obesity epidemic? If you go looking you will quickly come to the conclusion that it doesn’t exist. Along with the health risks posed by drinking alcohol, eating too much salt, sugar, red meat, butter, milk, and more or less anything else that big pharma have not made safe for you by adulterating it with toxic chemical the "evidence" is just phoney statistics, the science is bogus.
If you use BMI as an indicator it is possible to claim almost any healthy person is obese, according to the index obesity starts where anorexia stops. It appears this is precisely what is happening. As with all the heart disease bullshit, there is a concerted effort by the mass medication industry to turn us all into patients for life. One in four obese? FFS, this is risible. Have a quick bur surreptitious count next time you walk down a fairly busy street. Why do the medical authorities, government and media indulge in such scaremongering? Well in the case of the media, those precious little lefties with their Mickey Mouse degrees in "journalism" know no better. As for the others, follow the money.

By Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - A child who arrived in Chicago with a fever was under observation on Friday at a city hospital to rule out the Ebola virus, hospital officials said. Federal officials screening arriving passengers at O'Hare International Airport detected the fever, but no other symptoms of the disease, the University of Chicago Medical Center said in a statement. The patient was isolated under strict quarantine protocols until the child’s condition improves and a diagnosis is established, the hospital said. The child was in stable condition. ...

By James Harding Giahyue MONROVIA (Reuters) - Turnout for Liberian parliamentary elections on Saturday appeared to be low as concerns about Ebola kept many voters at home. Polling stations were largely empty after voting began at 8 a.m. (3.00 a.m. ET) in the seafront capital Monrovia, with voters occasionally drifting in, despite precautions put in place by the National Elections Commission (NEC). Staff with temperature guns at polling stations checked voters for any signs of the hemorrhagic fever, which is spread via bodily fluids. ...
