Soaring obesity levels mean one in 10 deaths in England and Wales is now caused by excess weight, the chief medical officer has warned.

Prof Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical Officer for England, said that a “normalisation” of being overweight meant many people did not recognise that they weighed too much, and that the extra pounds could shorten their life.

Writing for The Sunday Telegraph, she highlighted research which shows that about 10 per cent of deaths in England and Wales are the result of excess weight.

The study, by the University of Cambridge, suggests that next year, between 40,000 and 53,000 deaths in England and Wales will be attributable to extra pounds, including more than three quarters of diabetic deaths and one quarter of deaths from heart disease.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1...warns.html it's a horrible problem here in America also..damned.gif

Food addiction should be dealt with like any other addiction, but you'd have to to want to break it for that to truly work.

Sorry for being not so politically correct with my words but for many years i've often mentioned and i've often asked "how many old fat people do you see walking around? well the truth is hardly any if any at all because the heart is a living machine and it cant stand the abuse and the extra strenuous exertion of continuously trying to pump the bodies blood supply beneath the crushing weight of too much fat and so it wears out too fast and breaks down too soon and most perhaps all very overweight people end up dying relatively too young because of it and thats the sad and sorry truth and a damn shame...
