Study: Obesity Could Lead To Depletion Of Earth’s Resources
Hilarious non science study
I am without words. I mean what on earth could properly describe this kind of twaddle?
I am sure a lot money would be saved on pensions and we could do with much smaller houses if we all looked like this
But if that’s worth it?
An interesting study,
Analysing Recent Socioeconomic Trends in Coronary Heart Disease Mortality in England, 2000–2007: A Population Modelling Study
A small part from the abstract:
Decreases in major cardiovascular risk factors contributed approximately 34% (21%–47%) to the overall decline in CHD mortality: ranging from about 44% (31%–61%) in the most deprived to 29% (16%–42%) in the most affluent quintile. The biggest contribution came from a substantial fall in systolic blood pressure in the population not on hypertension medication (29%; 18%–40%); more so in deprived (37%) than in affluent (25%) areas. Other risk factor contributions were relatively modest across all social groups: total cholesterol (6%), smoking (3%), and physical activity (2%).
In other words, once again, cholesterol is not a major contributor to CVD.
Cholesterol is not a CVD marker
