As of October, there have been approximately 4,000 worldwide Ebola deaths. Im not saying we should ignore this, but…
In the UK alone flu kills 2,500 people per year. Road accidents 2013 killed 1700.
A third of British adults are obese, and as far back as 2001, a report by the National Audit Office (NAO) ‘Tackling obesity in Britain’ estimated that approximately 6% of all deaths in England in 1998 were caused by obesity – a total of 30,000 excess deaths in that year, but when the Government looks at ways to help people reduce calorie intake there are screams of “Nanny State”, even though modern food processing, if left unregulated, makes it difficult to control your diet.
Just a thought.
