The Inactivity Pandemic
I am gemused to read that the Lancet is warning us that there is an "Inactivity Pandemic".
What the fark?
Seemingly, if the "research" is to be believed, lack of exercise is now causing as many deaths as smoking across the world.
A report, published in the Lancet (needless to say to coincide with the Olympics which has corporate sponsors such as McDonald's and Coke), estimates that about a third of adults are not doing enough physical activity; causing 5.3m deaths a year.
Researchers want the problem treated as a pandemic, and they recommend that Nanny warns us about the dangers of inactivity rather than just reminds us of the benefits of being active.
I have a far better solution, Nanny should proactively encourage us all to take up smoking:
1 The exercise from going to buy a packet of fags, from coughing vigorously each morning and from lifting a fag to our mouths will surely increase our metabolism.
2 The increase in deaths brought about by smoking will skew the statistics favourably towards smoking, rather than inactivity, as being the prime killer.
