Obesity

Published on 7/5/2012

We are what we eat, I blame the developed western world for the spread of obesity in the the form of fast food, convenience foods and TV dinners. Obesity is an epidemic sweeping the world. Living in the provinces of the Philippines it easy to see that the local diet of rice, seafoods and local vegetables produce lean people, however move towards the towns and cities where the influence of fast food has taken hold, it is an entirely different situation. Fast food is becoming the norm and the results are clear to be seen fat obese bodies. Now it use to be only westerners living here that were fat but now the locals have joined them and to make it worse the younger children are all clamouring for fast food. I wrote a blog not that long ago about the Mayor of New York seeking to ban the sale of oversized soda's, But it is time that governments started to take action on unhealthy foods, in the same way as smoking. Billions of dollars are spent on medical care to deal with obesity and associated effects such as diabetes, so its about time the fast food retailers were taxed, this would increase the cost of fast food and perhaps people would then start to return to their roots and eat healthier option. We are seeing the start of carbon taxes to help protect the environment so why not a tax to protect peoples health. Tonga a small island in the pacific is a great example of what is wrong The prevalence of obesity and associated diseases such as diabetes and hypertension is very high and increasing in the Pacific. Tonga is among the top five countries worldwide in terms of obesity, with 84% of Tongan males and 93% of females classified as overweight or obese....... The disease pattern is changing as a result of marked changes in diet, reduced physical activity and other obesogenic behaviours and environmental factors. The current health care budget is already compromised with over 60% being used for the management of non-communicable diseases. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3098171/ David Ogden
