Naveed Sattar, Professor of Metabolic Medicine at the University of Glasgow, either needs to self medicate or find a doctor who will cure his delusions.
He’s concerned about obesity, as many of the world’s population are, however he’s taken one giant leap into the Politically Correct World of nutjobs, moonbats and certifiable lunatics.
He is calling for more government intervention (yea right, when did that ever work?) with a central agency set up to deal with the problems of obesity. Ok, so where the problem?
He’s taking his campaign to the clothing manufacturers and retailers. “Oversize clothes should have obesity helpline numbers sewn on them to try and reduce Britain’s fat crisis,” he says. The tags are meant for clothes with waists above 102 cm for men, 94 cm for boys, 88 cm or size 16 for women and 80 cm for girls.
He also advocates all TV ads for sweets and snacks be banned before 9 pm.
Yea you read that correctly, he’s missing his optimum target audience, those that lay around all frickin’ night munching anything and everything that will still be allowed after 9pm. (dumb ass, in more ways than one)
This may surprise you, but I agree with his plan. But I have a single caveat.
All clothing designed to fit the near non-existent ass of a size 2 supermodel type must have a warning label explaining the health hazards involved in self induced vomiting 352 times each day.
Until that happens Professor, STFU.
