On Your Feet!


On Your Feet Britain says that office work is bad for you, sitting for long periods at work is linked to a host of health problems, which are not undone by working out in the gym.

It goes on to say that things were a lot better 100 years ago.

Thus I suggest that we all go down the mines or into the cotton mills, and return to a way of life and work that was much "healthier"!

Nanny Hates Preston


Congratulations to Preston for being ranked by Nanny as the "unhealthiest high street in the UK"!

This accolade was presented by The Royal Society for Public Health, which assessed 70 areas in the UK according to the types of businesses found there.

On Nanny's list of evil businesses are bookmakers, loan shops, tanning salons and fast-food outlets. These are viewed as having a "negative impact" on public health.

Would Nanny prefer a row of boarded up shops then?

On Nanny's good list of businesses were leisure centres and health services; no food shops then?

It seems that we are meant to exercise, but not eat!

Shrewsbury was named as having the "healthiest" High Street.

Based on the award, Nanny has called for a limit of 5% of each "unhealthy" type of business on a High Street to avoid saturation.

Why 5%?

Is there a scientific basis for this limit?

No, I thought not!

Therefore if only 5% of shops can be "evil", if no other shop wishes to set up business there we will end up with rows and rows of boarded up shop fronts which employ no one.

Here are Nanny's rankings as per the BBC:

Nanny Hates Fat People

Despite calls for fattism to be outlawed, Nanny continues to press ahead with her campaign against fat people.

Nanny's Health Select Committee says health workers should use every opportunity to deal with the problem.

The BBC quoted the committee:
"The committee regards it as inexplicable and unacceptable that the NHS is now spending more on bariatric surgery for obesity than on a national roll-out of intensive lifestyle intervention programmes that were first shown to cut obesity and prevent diabetes over a decade ago.

We call on the next government to make a clear commitment, together with appropriate long-term funding, to significantly increase the levels of cycling and walking

It is vital that the importance of physical activity for all the population - regardless of their weight, age, gender, health, or other factors - is clearly articulated and understood."
Compulsory exercise for all!

Huzzah!

Ermm.....how does spending more taxpayers' money encourage people to walk more?

Nanny Bans Fattism - How Ironic!


Without any sense of irony, an obesity expert (Dr Sarah Jackson) has called for "fattism" (ie making fun of fat people) to be treated the same way as sexism and racism.

In a study of more than 5,000 British adults, she found that those who were made to feel ashamed of their size suffered more symptoms of depression. They also had a lower quality of life than those who didn’t feel victimised.

She is quoted by the Mail:
"However, our results indicate that discriminatory experiences contribute to poorer psychological well being in individuals with obesity, but there are currently no laws prohibiting weight discrimination. 

This might send the message to people that weight discrimination is socially acceptable."
Whilst this may be all very well and good, given how cruel people can be, does she not see the irony here?

Nanny, the medical profession and the media spend every hour of every day harassing, ridiculing and pressurising fat people about their weight (eg Nanny's obsession with obesity, and TV's numerous reality shows publicly putting the obese on extreme diets).

It is the state that has increased the level of ridicule and obsession with people's girth; therefore it is the state that must first of all address the issue of discrimination by stopping its harassment!

Bollocks Research - Smiling is Sexist


In a stunning piece of bollocks "research" that on the scale of 1 to 10 of bollocks, hits 20, some bods in the USA have concluded that manners are every bit as sexist as rudeness.

The "research" was carried out on a staggering 27 pairs of undergraduates (yes 54 people!), that's most certainly a statistically reliable number of people on which to conduct "research".

The "research" concluded that men who open doors for women are as guilty of sexism as those who are rude to them. Psychologists found that a friendly or chivalrous attitude can mask chauvinistic and patronising views, because the men see females as weak creatures in need of their protection.

Psychologist Jin Goh of Northeastern University, Boston, is quoted by the Telegraph:
"While many people are sensitive to sexist verbal offences, they may not readily associate sexism with warmth and friendliness. 
Unless sexism is understood as having both hostile and benevolent properties, the insidious nature of benevolent sexism will continue to be one of the driving forces behind gender inequality in our society."
For good measure, seemingly smiling is also sexist!
"those who displayed a benevolent sexism were considered more approachable, warmer, friendlier and more likely to smile."
This would be laughable, if it were not for the fact that good money has been wasted on this shite!

The Dangers of The Sun


As we all enjoy the eclipse (somewhat masked by the cloud and smog), spare a thought for the kids of Whitchurch Primary School in Cardiff who have been banned from watching the solar eclipse.

For why?

Health and safety!

Instead the school will be showing the eclipse on a live feed inside the school premises, but will not allow children to go outside even if they have bought glasses with sun filters.
It is believed an email has been issued by Cardiff Council to schools in the county advising them to read a leaflet from the Royal Astronomical Society on how to observe an eclipse safely.

'Just looking at it can blind you'

What a load of old bollocks!

This is Britain for FFS, we are occluded in smog and cloud there is no danger of going blind at all!

Nanny's Gagging For It


During all the fuss and razzmatazz of yesterday's Budget, Nanny snuck out a civil service gagging order.

As per the Guardian:
"On 16 March, 51 days before the general election and two weeks before parliament enters purdah, the Cabinet Office changed the civil service code to introduce a new requirement on all 447,000 civil servants to secure ministerial authorisation for contacts with the media. 

Failure to do this risks disciplinary action, the new code says."
It is ironic that this was done during the Budget, given that large parts of that were leaked well in advance doubtless on the nod of Osborne!

Factoid: in my day, breach of Budget purdah was a flogging offence!

The Dangers of The Sun - Bollocks Reporting


According to the Telegraph too long in the sun could be deadly, as scientists reveal that too much vitamin D can lead to strokes or a heart attack.

What brings the Telegraph to this conclusion?

A study published in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism which warned for the first time of the effect on heart health of excess vitamin D. It found having too much vitamin D in our blood can be bad for our health has never been proven before - and it may have great influence on future intake of nutritional supplements. 

Professor of clinical medicine Peter Schwarz said:
"We have studied the level of vitamin D in 247,574 Danes, and so far, it constitutes the world's largest basis for this type of study.

We have also analysed their mortality rate over a seven-year period after taking the initial blood sample, and in that time 16,645 patients had died.

Furthermore, we have looked at the connection between their deaths and their levels of vitamin D. If your vitamin D level is below 50 or over 100 nanomol per litre, there is an greater connection to deaths.

We have looked at what caused the death of patients, and when numbers are above 100, it appears that there is an increased risk of dying from a stroke or a coronary. 

In other words, levels of vitamin D should not be too low, but neither should they be too high. Levels should be somewhere in between 50 and 100 nanomol per litre, and our study indicates that 70 is the most preferable level. 

These are very important results, because there is such great focus on eating vitamin D. We should use this information to ask ourselves whether or not we should continue to eat vitamins and nutritional supplements as if they were sweets. 

You shouldn't simply up the dose to feel better. We should only consume such vitamins in close coordination with our GP." 
In other words, don't overdose on vitamin D supplements (eminently sensible advice!).

None of the above warns about the dangers of vitamin D generated by sunbathing. In other words the Telegraph didn't read what the Professor said, and made its own bollocks conclusion to generate an attention grabbing headline!
