Big Brother USA better than UK version

The big reality TV star of the US Big Brother series is a Doctor Will Kirby with a massive level of intelligence who has used supreme skills of manipulation and psychology to win the game.

In the UK we have Helen Wood or Helen Plank as I like to call her, there is no comparison. The UK version is a glorified popularity contest whereas the USA show is a game of cunning, loyalty, morals and intelligence.

Obesity saves the NHS Money!

This study hasn't got the publicity is ought to as it doesn't fit into Labour and Tory narratives.

Obesity saves the NHS Money
Although effective obesity prevention leads to a decrease in costs of obesity-related diseases, this decrease is offset by cost increases due to diseases unrelated to obesity in life-years gained. Obesity prevention may be an important and cost-effective way of improving public health, but it is not a cure for increasing health expenditures.
Of course we should encourage people to not be obese for the sake of good health not because it saves the NHS money! If you follow the premise trotted out by the likes of Liz Kendall to its logical conclusion she should be encouraging people to become fat.
