The NEXT Nobel Prize


Obesity could be as big a crisis as climate change unless the nation starts to lose weight soon, Health Secretary Alan Johnson warned on Sunday.

He said tackling obesity was a long-term central plank of government policy but all parts of society must play their part.

Johnson has asked the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to look at the use of trans fats and its contribution to increased cholesterol and the subsequent risk of coronary heart disease.

It's about the UK, but we also have a problem with weight in this country.

Wouldn't it be awesome if Richard Simmons won next year's Nobel Peace Prize?

Eureka! Thank you for helping me make the connection.

More people are getting fatter. And the earth is getting warmer.


Here's what we do about it: tell that thunder-thighed cellulite-mama that she needs to fit into a size 9 bikini by next summer.

Stick to your guns.

Do it for the earth.
