North East England sees highest proportion of weight loss surgery - BBC News
The number of bariatric operations fell in the past three years, Freedom of Information requests reveal. Since 2013, there has been a more targeted approach, NHS England said. However, campaigners are calling for more funding for weight loss surgery. The National Obesity Forum says it would ultimately save the NHS money. And it said the decline of heavy industry and manual work in the North East had contributed to obesity problems, resulting in a greater rate of surgery. [...] An NHS England spokeswoman explained the drop was because bariatric treatment was currently handled as a national policy, rather than separately by each local area. She said it was now only offered to "appropriately selected patients".

NHS child mental health money 'missing' despite investment - BBC News
[ demand resource mismatch, chronic sick population siphoning off funds more and more ] Last summer ministers said they would invest an additional £143m in the services this financial year. The Mental Health Network suspects the funding has been used to support other NHS services. [...] The additional funding was part of a £1.25bn investment over five years announced by the chancellor in the Budget in March 2015. [ others said, with knowledge, that the 1.25bn is no investment rather than plugging holes, gaps, cracks and crevasses in services ] [...] "It doesn't seem to have turned into posts on the front line. We are not hearing any reports of any significant investment at a local level around children's services. Indeed, some services are still experiencing cuts in services." [...] Some trusts say they have seen additional funding [ TORY CONSTITUENCIES!? as the 300m - & & ]

Weight loss surgery 'cuts risk' of diabetes and heart attacks - BBC News
30% of people "relapse" after 2 years and start to gain weight by cheating (ie making snickers or mars bar smootie). And the majority still don't eat better, just improving their weight, but do not reverse heart disease, or insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, 5 (12) a day, ... // potted mini portions via ready meals. no cooking. no green. no cardiovascular exercise. // and then there is the excess skin eventually. // Is not healthy habit forming // same w fiber. very little fiber intake, continued meat intake will, no anti-inflammatory diet = increase risk of colorectal cancer! also still same risks for heart disease, no reversal (via whole-food plant-based diet) see Dean Ornish // [...] Among those who already had diabetes, their condition improved substantially and many (60%) were able to come off medication altogether. [ << LOL!!! No reversal of type 2? yeah bc they still eat shit and don't move proper. ]

30 stone at 13: meet the obese teenagers going under the knife | Society | The Guardian
More than 8,000 patients had weight-loss surgery in 2012-13, according to NHS figures – a 30-fold increase in just over a decade. They were not only middle-aged and long-term obese, but teenagers and young people, too: 570 under-25s had surgery between 2010 and 2013, according to the UK National Bariatric Surgery Registry, and nearly 40% of these were “super obese”. Despite healthy eating edicts and government campaigns, they had, in their short lives, already advanced through the obesity categories – obese, severely obese, morbidly obese – and now, at super obese, were more than twice the weight they should be.

Dieting vs. Exercise for Weight Loss -
The overarching conclusion of that study, which was published last week in the journal PLoS One, is not really new or surprising, says Dr. Timothy Church, who holds the John S. McIlhenny Endowed Chair in Health Wisdom at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Louisiana and who has long studied exercise and weight control. >> “It’s been known for some time that, calorie for calorie, it’s easier to lose weight by dieting than by exercise,” << he says.

People stick with low-calorie diets more readily than they continue with exercise to drop pounds. Because human metabolism appears to be less revved by activity than was once believed.
