Fatlings Put Unsustainable Pressure On Planet's Resources


The following story is a pack of lies created by fat haters. Oink angrily fellow fatlings!


(And Their Excess Weight Would ‘Fill A Lake')



A new study shows that the increase in the average weight of populations is helping to put unsustainable pressure on the world’s natural resources.

According to new research published in BioMed Central’s open access journal BMC Public Health, the adult human population weighs in at 287 million tonnes - 18.5 million of which comes from overweight and obese individuals.

"This isn't a personal attack on fatness. In our study we're demonstrating this is a political problem," says Professor Ian Roberts who led the research at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).

"I feel sorry for people in rich countries, where in order to maintain a health body mass index, you’ve almost got to starve yourself, because the environment encourages fatness."
Roberts argues that rather than focusing on obesity, we should turn our attention to rising levels of 'fatness'.

"Thin people are getting fatter. If you're the thinest person in the office now, you'll still be fatter than the thinnest person would have been 10 years ago."

"You've got to live simply so others can simply live," he adds. "We’re on a small planet and are eating our own life support system."

The primary threat to food security remains the consumption of resource-intensive food by wealthy nations, such as meat, Roberts confirms. But he maintains that tackling population weight is also crucial for food security and ecological sustainability.

As the study’s authors pointed out at the Cheltenham Science Festival, if the whole world slimmed down through liposuction our excess fat would fill a lake the size of Derwent’s Water, reports The Times.

According to Professor John Mathers, director of the
Human Nutrition Research Centre at Newcastle University body mass is the first indicator of how much food a person will consume.
“The bottom line is that increasing obesity does have major consequences for demand for food and therefore impacts on food security.”

“Because heavier people need more energy to fuel their larger body mass they consume more food than the equivalent lean person. Some fatter people may consume more energy-dense foods, such as foods that are rich in fat and/or sugar and low in water, but this is secondary to their consumption of more food."

Mathers suggests countries can mitigate the danger by preventing obesity, while reducing food waste and the consumption of animal-derived foods.

According to the study, the average body mass globally is 62kg.
In their league table of body mass, North America has the highest of any continent, with an average of 80.7kg.

While North America has only 6% of the world’s population, it has 34% of the world’s biomass mass due to obesity. In contrast Asia has 61% of the world’s population but only 13% of the world’s biomass due to obesity.

Despite our relatively small population, the UK came in 18th in the chart, taking up 1.3 kg of the world's biomass. Our average adult body mass is 167lb 2oz (75.8kg) and the British adult population is 30lb 7oz (13.8kg) fatter than the rest of the world.

Please leave your angry oinks and express your outrage!

  1. Well, I really don't leave that big of a "carbon footprint" since I use public transportation. I ride the city buses because I don't have a car.

    In my apartment, I only have two lights on and I bought those energy saver lights that only use about 25 watts but are as bright as the old style incandescent 100 watt bulbs, but they are only 25 watts.

    The only electrical appliances I have running is my fan, and the refrigerator which of course does not run continuously, and my computer with the wide flat screen monitor. And my stove is only on when I'm cooking.

    So, I don't use as much energy as the average home.

    I think athletes contribute far more to wasted energy than us fat people.

    Sporting events, such as football or baseball should be held during the daylight hours, instead of wasting so much electricity during night games.

    Also, they should stop giving away free Hummers to football players after they have beaten and raped our women, and send them off to prison instead, and keep them in solitary confinement with only a 25 watt bulb that's on for only 8 hours each day!

    That should teach them fuck-tards!

    Oh gee! Am I being cynical again?

    I hope so, because I love being cynical.

    Don Rickles is my favorite comedian. We both have three things in common. We're both, fat, bald, and cynical!!!

    Also . . . . .

    The military is the biggest waste of energy especially during times of war.

    If the energy they waste were put to other uses, we would have more energy resources available for farming and food production.

    But NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    We waste all the energy for killing people.

    I'm a member of Amnesty International.

    Every day I sign petitions online.

    Did you know, that it is easier to export and import weapons than it is to import bananas?

    Yeah! That's right!!!

    Amnesty International recently sponsored a campaign titled GO BANANAS!!!

    Just a few days ago, I signed one of their online petitions and I donated $5 dollars toward their GO BANANAS campaign.

    Instead of blaming us fat people (most of us who are poor anyway) for all the world's problems, we should be attacking the big corporations who are responsible for polluting the environment, and contributing huge amounts of money to the Republican party, who are against science education in our schools, while wanting to insert Creationist fair tales from the BUY-BULL into high school science textbooks.

    Actually, the Republicans are against public education, and one senator (a moronic turncoat Democrat) in Kentucky wanted to cut $50 million dollars from education, and spend $43 million dollars on a Noah's Ark Theme Park!

    Well, I guess the theme park will create jobs.

    Somebody has to pick up the gum wrappers and empty Cracker Jack boxes from the park grounds, and scrub the toilets and mop the floors in the pavilion!

    YEAH RIGHT!!!

    Our own kids will have to do without a decent education and settle for minimum wage shit-jobs for the rest of their lives!

    But hey! We can save a lot of money, and just import well educated science nerds and techno-geeks from overseas!

    Right???

    And we fat people are getting blamed of all the world's problems???


    And so . . . I shall express my outrage with many angry oinks!
