Now they are blaming overweight people for global warming.
The proponents of this theory claim that overweight people take more energy to transport, and they eat more food and that takes more energy to produce, and so overweight people contribute much more to the threat of "global warming".
It sounds too ridiculous to be true?
I am afraid it is very real:
British scientists say they use up more fuel to transport them around and the amount of food they eat requires more energy to produce than that consumed by those on smaller diets.
According to a team at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine this adds to food shortages and higher energy prices.
Researchers Phil Edwards said: “We are all becoming heavier and it is a global responsibility. Obesity is a key part of the big picture."
