'Obesity' Promotion Drunkards

If you've ever tried to talk to anyone that's absolutely hammered, you'll know the difficulties in attempting to communicate with them. I do not mean someone who's squiffy, I mean falling down drunk. You cannot guarantee that they'll understand even a simple sentence like: "The cat sat on the mat."

Not because they lose language facility, but due to you being unable to know which if any of those words will register in terms of comprehension. They may understand "cat" but not sat, on the or mat. Furthermore, if you said that three times, you could not predict that they'd mis/understand the same things one, two or even three out of three times.

That is the nature of the mind of someone who's throughly sozzled and, someone who's under the influence of the 'obesity' ideology. 'Obesity' malarkey intoxicates minds,
“Obesity is costing the NHS £16bn a year. We at Obesity Action Campaign are alarmed by this. Obesity causes cancer, diabetes, heart disease and liver cirrhosis. It is the HIV of our age. It is killing millions of our patients,” he said.
That's Dr. Jude Oben. I left the link to his website as in the video featured on it-a 2012 interview with Sky-he can barely keep a straight face. The man has laughing eyes and nearly corpses at the start and especially the end of the interview- whilst trying to convince that millions dying, millions dying. Never once telling the interviewer that he is one of the costly dying ones. Which is lucky because he appears in on the joke too.

Oben goes on to tell us that he is raising awareness *puke*.

No one bothers to tease him about why he has to raise awareness of millions dying. Of why we wouldn't have noticed "the HIV of our age." It's the usual 'obesity' spiel, with one of my faves, predicting that in so and so years, 'obese's will be 50% of the population.

In other words people like himself will be just as much or even more useless than they are now. That is their plan of course and pretty much has been for the last few decades.

How much longer will we allow them to get away with this do you think?

Saving Money

Alcoholism like many other dependencies/compulsions is susceptibility + exposure. Some have a heightened susceptibility;
They had a nip, and then another. “It tasted horrible,” Blaise recalls. “But something clicked. I suddenly felt relaxed and at peace.
Samuel Blaise on his first experience with alcohol whilst bunking off with a school friend aged 12.

Others have greater exposure before their system succumbs.

Given alcohol genuinely exacts a toll in terms of healthcare costs, human misery and other social costs, you'd think any prospect of effective treatment for alcoholism would be leapt at by those in healthcare. You'd not be correct in that perfectly reasonable assumption though. The authorities dragged their feet despite lobbying from organisations representing former alcoholics. Plus;
...the backlash from the detox industry was swift and ferocious. There was also pushback from some members of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), which he says promotes a culture of total abstinence.
That goes even deeper,
“They function like a church.......suddenly, scientists arrive with a medication and rationally explain that a biological issue can be fixed. Suddenly, you don’t need abstinence, you don’t need a higher being. The very basis of the church comes crashing with it.”
Yeah, suddenly science.
Blaise says that while he greatly respects members, he has heard a sentiment akin to “you don’t deserve to be cured” from the AA crowd. This makes sense, he says, because to be in a constant state of craving is unthinkably hard. “You need to be at war with yourself to remain sober, minute after minute, day after day. AA people spend years, or even decades before they finally reach a state of indifference towards booze, whereas those of us who take Baclofen have to fight a mere few weeks.”
And there we have it. When a pathology is or is perceived to be caused/triggered by consumption it often becomes a vehicle for morality, like sports or art is for others. The people who go in for this cannot accept their own irrationality, so they cloak their urges in rationale calling it "debate" using (pseudo)science terms. This infestation by moralitis shuts down science due to it nurturing the urge to hold the quarry's feet to the fire. That fire being a fight with the unbearable.

I underlined that part becuase people are still resisting the observation that the desire is not to cure, it is to force them to be subject to the distress and pain of battling with their own bodies. To be imprisoned in their own selves.

In this case - the craving is for alcohol. If the moralists are able to get a hold of things, they pretend nothing is everything and the cure. That nothing being abstinence, which is literally not-a-thing. It's, "Stop drinking", ignoring that the very inability to stop- defines alcoholism.

Nothing predictably fails to work, which has to be the target's fault. It's their addiction, illness etc., and the aforementioned battle becomes the person's permanent state. They are deemed a "recovering" alcoholic etc.,  When really, that -ing indicates continuation of the problem. The evidence of it is the very craving that torments. Those sodden with guilt are persuaded this is somehow their penance for ever having the nerve to be susceptible to alcoholism.

It is "self-inflicted"

"Recovery" of this sort is merely the establishment of incompetence as the standard-in place of actual treatment, remedy or cure. Thus the appearance of doing something, whilst doing nothing is maintained.

In essence alcoholism is the template for phony baloney 'obesity' pseudo-science. With the same pretence of declaring 'disease', it seeks to set fat people up with a fight with hunger. No matter the cost.

Baclofen the drug in question is not without its problems, to put it mildly, however, the pursuit of real remedy means perhaps other genuine remedies for the horror that alcoholism will be found. Undoubtedly better than the falsely moralized degeneracy we have now.

Where people are permitted to die slowly, with a weeping chorus of loved ones strewn around, because the compulsion to lock people into futile battles with internal biochemical imbalance is allowed its head.

Caring saves lives and ££££'s people.

Stop Pricing People

It's been noted that the most self consciously racist of all usually love the fat phobic cult. The other day I happened to catch one of them claiming to the effect of "54% of Black women are 'obese'." Accompanied by its source-the bureau of bullshit stats division that always accompanies 'obesity' promotions inc.

A "field" that purports to be science yet pursues damage, over physiology, degradation over increasing well-being, mutilation over conservation. One that has achieved nothing in 40 years. In little more than half that time, proper scientists almost slayed a virus without figuring out the puzzle of that fiendish strain.

This master racial unit then cried;"You are paying for this" or somesuch unconvincing pretence "you"=White people. Women not men, because of course AA men fail to fit into the 'obesity' construct lifestyle cause fiction, by failing to match women statisically.

It brought home again that Black women are being put in the position of being price tagged thanks to this wretched up to no account cult.  One plenty of Black people don't have any problems with.

Real Medicine

My attention was drawn to the story of Abdul Jabbar Tunio. He is a Pakistani vegetable seller who's been felled by a haywire metabolism. This has produced aggressive weight gain over the last 20 or so years of his life. Matters have come to a head and he is currently in intensive care having reached 42 and a half stones /595lbs/270 kgs.

Due to the factors that have produced this gain, Tunio has gone from being immobile over the last few months to a state of semi-consciousness.

What's quietly compelling about his story is the entirely sane, honest and apt responses of everyone concerned. His family are genuinely grief-stricken and have searched vainly over the last few months for means to remedy his condition.
Jabbar’s brother, Abdul Haleem Tunio, and his nephew stare at his body, lying in a bed in the ICU, with heavy hearts. “Jabbar has been unable to drink, eat or talk since the day he arrived at the hospital on Tuesday,” Haleem told The Express Tribune with tearful eyes.
They did not see him as just a "shut-in" or someone getting what he deserves. A political representative got involved and acted in a perfectly straight-forward way;
The 39-year-old patient suffering from morbid obesity was brought from Larkana to the JPMC on Tuesday on the direction of Pakistan Peoples Party chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
[My emphasis.]

The response of the medical professionals has been what you'd expect from people who've trained for years to heal the sick.Though unsure what do, they are "trying hard to stabilise him". Guided by basic medical protocol. The lead doctor- Javed Jamali described him as "suffering from a rare medical condition".

Even the health minister got involved;
[The] health minister Dr Sikandar Mandhro also visited the patient on Wednesday and directed the hospital administration to constitute a medical board for Jabbar’s treatment.
That medical board will consist of,
....a general physician, general surgeon, nephrologist and chest physician to investigate the cause of the weight gain.
Medics, not dieticians, nutritionists, psychologists, social workers, but specialist medical professionals.

They did not have the means to accommodate his body, so,
According to Dr Jamali, they have ordered a made-to-order bed and mattress for Jabbar.
No whining and whingeing about the awful inconvenience of a very sick man, being brought to a place to treat illness and injury.

Now, not being aware of any back story, I've no idea if there's more to this than meets the eye, but in a way, that's kind of irrelevant as what rings true is the attitude of all concerned. They are reacting to someone who's sick.

I could barely find one bum note in any of the responses reported. Even the journalists talk of his "bloated body" though unnecessary, in such a rational context, it doesn't attain any edge. Talk of 'obesity' only troubles in the sense that it may get in the way of the mission. The only time I briefly snorted was when at an earlier hospital, the family was told he could only be treated at a prestigious big city hospital or abroad.

It's comparatively easy to keep pointing out that the foul idiocy that passes for a response to weight in the West has been deliberately engineered by a crusade involving health bureaucrats, researchers and medical professionals. It is quite another to see it this clearly by getting a sense of how it would look in the absence of such. Imagine all that could have been achieved.

We're currently at the point where some are trying to deny medical treatment and others are busily trying to engage in mass stomach removal. We are at that point because we chose to be and want to be here. People want to go along with excluding others from medical treatment.

It's a regressive backlash, the indulgence feeling we are too spoilt and need to feel life red in tooth and claw. That somehow it is immoral to attempt to avoid meaningless suffering and abuse.

It's worth noting Pakistan is a Muslim country, purported by crackpots to be a medieval throwback in modern times. Ironically, a lot of those types love the 'obesity' crusade and howl when it is challenged even though that's mostly weak and on terms dictated by it.

Imprisoning millions in a pathological and incompetence outlook will generate little but cost. If answers are found for Mr Tunio that will serve and/or inform others. Bigotry costs. Quackery costs. Mutilation costs. Mal intent costs. Regression costs.

Real progress saves more than lives. But people want it to generate costs to fulfil the idea of pricing individuals like cattle.

I'm sure many can see this now, but its still worth having a clear idea in your mind of how things could have been and still could be if people committed unequivocally to ending any collusion with such. I hope Pakistan can keep this up, they might even stumble over some real answers.

'Obesity' crusade degeneracy is the real contagion I find. People who start off with something like this level of decency can with enough effort by the influential, be turned into the sour hate fuelled trolls, we know and are bored by. 

A small detail. Mr Tunio's metabolic problems started when he was 18 and broke his leg.
Breaking a bone is a big shock to your whole body. It's normal for you to receive strong messages from parts of your body that aren't anywhere close to the fracture.
This reminds me of the late rapper Biggie Smalls,
He'd always been a somewhat husky kid, but at age ten he fell off a city bus and broke his right leg in three places..... His leg was in a cast for six months. Laid up in the house with nothing better to do, he ate, putting on pounds that stuck around long after his leg healed.
Along with a small but consist number of examples of people's metabolic derangement either starting with or being taken to a new accelerated level of aggression after breaking legs-other bones too, but given they're our biggest limbs....

Trauma, disrupted signals flying about, inflammation, could well surge through the system, setting this kind of gain in motion. In the West attention is fixated on increased intake of food or alcohol, but it should be relatively obvious that is an increased demand for energy.

Perhaps the need for healing and to make new cells is amplified excessively and that is added to the abundance of signalling.

The aim should be to calm that response as much as possible. One thing to try would be to calm the (nervous) system down overall, leaving the signalling needed for rebuilding to go on with less background noise.

It might be worth investigating teaching people techniques that relax their minds with meditation and from head to toe with something like guided relaxation, whilst their limbs are repairing. It's sometimes called guided relaxation.

That would be good for everyone, to relieve stress and aid healing. Experiments shouldn't be too hard to set up in hospital and with follow through in outpatient clinics. Something like this might prevent those who have this effect from getting to this stage in the first place.

I wish Mr. Tunio a speedy recovery.

Toytown Emperors

Shaw Sommers, a bariatric surgeon *eyebrow raise* has taken an opportunity to drum up some coin for his organ removal business. The occasion is an announcement by an NHS overseeing body called a CCG-Clinical Commissioning Group, that they wish to delay elective surgeries for those with a body mass of 30 or above.

The Vale of York to be precise has decided to put fat/ter people on probation for a year or however long it takes them to starve off 10% of their body mass-whichever period comes around first. No reports on what will happen to their organ amputation provision.

The excuse for this obvious attempt to leverage pain to bully people into starvation induced weight loss is excused as the; "best way of achieving maximum value from the limited resources available”. Oh go on Vale of York, we so believe you!

Sommers is quoted as saying this is like discriminating on the basis of their colour or religious persuasion, as wait for it, "obesity is an illness". We all know that's false, the AMA openly they were saying that to get paid.

This is nothing like racism. The discrimination is that anybody no matter their weight has to lose it via a pathological and ineffective means the body is designed to reject. This isn't acknowledged. Worse still it disregards patient consent, which is fundamental to the practise of medicine. 

Even if you are one of those invested in delusion about the efficacy of calorie restriction induced weight loss-CRIWL, you've still got the fact that much injury and illness is just as much the "fault" of the individual as fat is supposed to be, especially if you apply the same standard of judgement as used for 'obesity'. 

Whether its people injuring themselves to people having accidents-one that springs to mind was a wheelchair user who injured several of her friends, doing lasting damage and ended in being a quadriplegic through their own careless driving.

Self inflicted is an irrelevant concept in medicine. Or it was until 'obesity' became a verbal tic.

The urge toward deserving and undeserving unwell is as bigger bunk as is possible to imagine. Things you wouldn't dream of require far less effort to manage or even resolve than fighting your body's endless defences against calorie restriction. It would, will be a surrprise to us as biology hacks get more sophisticated, just how much we can do for ourselves.

The estimate amount of pscycho somatic illness would shock people.

That's the real discrimination against fat people and in this case smokers two very easy targets. It just so happens that both have vociferous cults aimed at them. Weight is especially bad. I don't wish to throw smokers under the bus, but there is no comparison between not lighting up and inhaling tubers of tobacco and fighting your body's survival instincts. Though I daresay many of them wouldn't see it that way.

CCG's are;
Led by an elected Governing Body made up of GPs, other clinicians including a nurse and a secondary care consultant, and lay members;
Um hum.

In keeping with that Summers isn't even against this punishment fandango, oh heavens to Murgatroyd no;
Shaw Somers, a bariatric surgeon from Portsmouth, said the move was a logical step and could save money, but amounted to discrimination because obesity was an illness.
A "logical step" huh? So would using racial religious discrimination to ration medical treatment be "logical" then? That would make the medical principle of treatment according to need, "illogical." Yet, no other criterion would appear to make more sense.

Then comes the laughable shilling,
“Just saying you can’t have surgery and there is no access to alternative treatments really doesn’t help anyone.”
"Alternative treatments" is reference to his bowdlerising chop socky or some other ghastly item on the iatrogenic 'obesity' repertoire. Neither alternative nor treatment. The sympathy pose is big right now with the 'obesity' promoters.

Sadly for them, cutting out people's organs isn't remotely sympathetic at all.

There's no question something has gone badly awry with certain elements of the medical profession's psyche. A feeling has grown that any action they may disapprove of-real or imagined-undoes their hard work and those who do deserve to be left in agony or death - serve them right. 

They consider medical training to have given them the power of life or death over others.

I personally couldn't care less. I'd just wish to remind them their practise is a monopoly. That fact has served them very well. It is over the moment they consider themselves too grand to treat anyone on the basis of their irrelevant prejudice.

Update: Vale of York is backpeddling;
Major surgery poses much higher risks for severely overweight patients who smoke. So local GP-led clinical commissioning groups are entirely right to ensure these patients first get support to lose weight and try and stop smoking before their hip or knee operation.
"Severely overweight patients who smoke" Really V of Y? You said BMI 30 + and smokers, don't try and fib, its in writing.

Hot Hot Hot

Arrow-Hot Hot Hot

We're in the midst of a hot spell over here in the UK, comparatively speaking. Citizens of really hot countries would probably say- "Pish! You call this hot?" Enough yes. Temperatures have varied, but the day before yesterday seemed hotter than hot prior to it; and guess what?

Even those around me with rather robust hunger [function] found that had petered out significantly. And you know what happens then don't you? People don't eat or don't eat much.  Barely do they notice this absence half the time. If any weight loss will occur from it, they will not feel starved. They will not "battle". No plans are required. No conscious intent. No portion control. No "willpower" no "self control" no "discipline". No weight management thought-control. Nothing nada. Just, existence.

Kind of like being a slim person. But without the pretence that your size is a product of non-stop workin' nowt.

The best way to eat less is to reduce hunger function. It's not rocket science.

Not might I add, "hunger suppression", not cranking up metabolic function until it destroys your organs. I'm talking putting hunger on its standby setting. The difference between the two is like the difference in reducing your temperature, heightened or otherwise, or seeking to reduce body heat by raising your temperature so you sweat more.

Because sweating cools you down.

Though raising your temperature could sicken/kill you, so what?! It's the principle, not how principle plays out in reality, isn't it?

Contrary to reports of natural selection and evolution hugely favouring 'overeating' and weight gain in us; this is how much of a hold eating has over you.

Something you've done your whole life. Something that is fundamental to your every day existence, something you are designed to ensure is done regularly-that my friends is how much of a hold eating has over you, without hunger.

That's how 'addicty' eating/food is without hunger. That's why hunger is such powerful feeling. In its acute phases it gives off a kind of psychic, as well as physical discomfort/pain, such as we fear that distress enough to make the advanced preparations necessary to keep access to a ready energy supply.

Without hunger food can so easily become irrelevant. The speed of this is salutary. From irresistibly compelling to, fuhgedaboutit.

The latter means we would hardly be inclined to prepare for times when hunger will come, unless the distress was of a kind that created anticipatory activity. Extraordinarily clever and effective design. If you doubt, take a look at trashy tat bulimia facilitator.

Pain can be surprisingly uncompelling when its not there. But the nature of the distress of more acute hunger combined with the nature of our own mind's memory of distress is enough that we can commit to extensive preparations for the need for energy, whether we are experiencing it or not.

This is true insight into how "rewarding" eating is without the primary driver of hunger/appetite. That's:


Not emotion, not thought, not allegory pathology or narrative metaphor, repeat after me:


We gain clear insight into how easily adjustable hunger/appetite could be if that had been a proper investigation point, rather than the pointless mind block that is the 'obesity' construct. Though it should be pointed out that reduced hunger goes with reduced levels of activity.

To be sure, a rise in heat and/or light can decimate hunger.

Why and how though?

Handling Hatred

The School of Life - On Being Hated

This reminds me a lot of the real issues fat people have with detaching psychologically from the purveyors of fat phobia. It's politically pertinent too. The hatred is not personal to or indicative of you, it is a tool for others to do what they want.

You simply do not have to believe those who sell 'obesity' have any interest in your well being at all. You are not responsible for their mindset. You are not responsible for leading them out of the false consciousness they've built. Your only duty is to yourself. Not because you are not your sister's/brother's keeper, but because you can only help them through helping yourself. 

You can only change them by changing yourself. That may seem hard, but it is more punishing to seek to 'persuade' them than it is to acknowledge yourself and your own experience.

People who would rather cut you, drill holes into you, seek to bend your psyche to increase your tolerance of their imposed pathologies, rather than change the way they think are not to be trusted to act in your best interests, no matter their medical, scientific or social status.
