Scale of NHS deficits to be revealed - BBC News
"we are looking at a systematic problem across the health service." locum staff & sending patients 4 ops 2 private places paid by NHS 2 clear rising waiting lists (RISING DEMAND) & meet Targets. Bed blocking bc severe shortage of elderly care done by austerity. Ageing & premature ageing population & rise of chronic diseases (& thus other comorbidity things that are a result of chronic diseases:joint pains back pains heart problems mobility problems swollen legs bc bodies lymph system gives up skin problems infections care etc complex needs arise - bc they treat symptoms. not the problem, the root of all evil). NHS cant treat a sick population with the status quo it has been handed down by Tories policy. Tories like 2 remove benefits from parents of truants, disabled, vulnerable (to make their lives better). BUT Big Sugar & Processed Food? No nanny state there. Socially unacceptable. Unpopular amongst majority. Career Politicians unequal real reformer/visionary. &! bit.ly/1OpQXBS

Obesity: 'Slim chance' of return to normal weight - BBC News
[ its the environment & addiction component, stupid ] For severe obesity, shedding excess weight in a year is even more unlikely, a study of UK health records concluded. [...] [S]trategies for helping obese patients are failing. A team from King's College London is calling for "wider-reaching public health policies" to prevent people becoming obese in the first place. Lead researcher Dr Alison Fildes said the main treatment options offered to obese people in the UK - weight management programmes via their GP - were not working for the vast majority. "Treatment needs to focus on stopping people gaining more weight and maintaining even small levels of weight loss," she said. "Current strategies that focus on cutting calories and boosting physical activity aren't working for most patients to achieve weight loss and maintain that. "The greatest opportunity for fighting the obesity epidemic might be in public health policies to prevent it in the first place at a population level."

Edible Education 101: Michael Pollan (2015) - YouTube
'production and consumption (of what types of food) is the key to most things that is on our mind as society - climate change, health & well being, income, food, - are all related.' // livestock farming is 2nd biggest contributor to CO2 emissions (global warming), what we put in our mouths and whether we are active or sedentary determines our happiness, well being and health and in what way we grow old (sick and kept alive) or actually enjoying your old age. // food industry has no shared economic interest and is not a stakeholder because it is a rootless corporate conglomerate that evades taxation and lobbies for subsidies and also thus evades possible prosecution when wrongdoing/negligence is clear, oversight and transparency - exploits unsustainable - money (or stored value in fiat 'container') doesnt have 2 deal with ecological/environmental disaster & economic damage &! personal identity social status = meat consumption! + marketing + peer pressure

The Complete Skinny on Obesity - YouTube
chronic disease are 75% of health care expenditure in western world & developing world! developing countries have bigger problem w obesity & metabolic syndrome than infections like cholera/tb // min13 (Structure of Sugar) fructose is equal 2 alcohol. glucose is metabolized by every organ in the body. even if you don't consume glucose, your body will make it. fructose can only metabolized by the liver. you are overloading your liver (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease). fructose is a liver toxin (liver fat). fructose and alcohol is metabolized into fat! alcohol and fructose can be both nutrients, but they can also be addictive // min 20 Leptin resistance. Insulin turns sugars into fat. western diet (dietary composition, omnivore, fast & processed food) encourage body 2 up the production of insulin (sugar 2 fat) till the ceiling is reached (Pancreatitis -> diabetes). increased insulin response (from diet composition) blocks leptin-to-brain signal (feeling of full) &is addictive over time

What Causes Insulin Resistance? | NutritionFacts.org
Prediabetes and type 2 diabetes are caused by a drop in insulin sensitivity blamed on “intramyocellular lipid,” the buildup of fat inside our muscle cells. // fat. sugar tolerance higher with lower fat intake. but western processed foods are sugar & fat bombs combined ( youtu.be/71j8TPwkTQE ), and don't forget the salt and the non-existing fiber and physiochemical and vitamins and minerals. &! &! Follow-up: Insulin resistance in muscles ( http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-spillover-effect-links-obesity-to-diabetes/ ). As we get older and western sedentary lifestyle = muscle shrinkage. Contributes to increased risk of diabetes and obesity with getting older. bc less regular strenuous activity = less muscle retention. &! &! http://nutritionfacts.org/video/lipotoxicity-how-saturated-fat-raises-blood-sugar/ un-processed plant fats means no olive oil and other oils in bottles. improve insulin sensitivity >> "whole" plant based diet &! addressed also skinny omnivores vs vegans.
