Ten million Brits are unaware they are obese because being fat is now seen as the 'norm', according to new research.'Research', eh..?
I'm starting to love seeing that word in the pages of the MSM, and then going on to find out that it isn't any such thing.
Less than one in 10 people believe the excess pounds they are carrying is significant enough for them to be classified as obese, according to a YouGov poll of more than 2,100 adults.A YouGov poll...? Referring to 'measurements' and governmental 'figures'...?
But measurements found that more than one in four of those questioned were clinically obese, the same as official government figures.
You mean, like the discredited BMI measurement?
Hmmm, who could possibly want more people to believe they are obese? Who stands to gain from it?
Here's a clue:
It means three in four obese people do not realise their health is at risk, warns Slimming World which commissioned the study to mark its 40th anniversary.Ah, ha ha ha ha ha!
Seriouslt, the 'Telegraph' decides to print this load of old flannel, despite it being a blatent attempt at rent-seeking?
And they call this proferession 'journalism'...
