When we eventually solve the current covid situation, and I hope it will happen very soon, what other problem should we concentrate on?
My peak would be obesity.
According to WHO, ” As 2020, obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with at least 2.8 million people dying each year as a result of being overweight or obese.”
It looks like we don’t care. Obesity deniers are still winning this war, spreading false information, telling us there is no problem, and mainstream media are on their side.
Imagine what would happen if we attack obesity as fierce and with the same government integration level as covid?
Instead of staying home advice, we would be forced to go outside, every day, for at least 60 min, to engage in a cardio activity. Gatherings in cake shops and fast foods would be banned. Eating sugar would be discouraged. Unhealthy foods would be heavily taxed, while healthy ones subsidised.
The obesity centres would pop up in cities, with drive-in visceral fat test facilities staffed with nutritionists, fitness professionals, psychologists and doctors offering help and advice.
Just imagine how many lives could be saved and improved.
The good news is you don’t have to wait.
Start taking care of yourself and your family today.
Be the example.
