After counting up all the things I'm doing to shorten my life expectancy it turns out I've actually been dead for fourteen years.

Elephantman: trivial use of my dark powers: Fat people don't cost the system big gobs of money anymore than the smokers--they tend to die before they get elderly and become REALLY expensive.

All you health freaks, you're costing all of us, you selfish preeks. Put down the tofu and eat some fries for heaven's sake.


It costs more to care for healthy people who live years longer, according to a Dutch study that counters the common perception that preventing obesity would save governments millions of dollars.

The researchers found that from age 20 to 56, obese people racked up the most expensive health costs. But because both the smokers and the obese people died sooner than the healthy group, it cost less to treat them in the long run.
On average, healthy people lived 84 years. Smokers lived about 77 years, and obese people lived about 80 years. Smokers and obese people tended to have more heart disease than the healthy people.
Cancer incidence, except for lung cancer, was the same in all three groups. Obese people had the most diabetes, and healthy people had the most strokes. Ultimately, the thin and healthy group cost the most, about $417,000, from age 20 on.
The cost of care for obese people was $371,000, and for smokers, about $326,000.
The results counter the common perception that preventing obesity will save health systems worldwide millions of dollars.

"Lung cancer is a cheap disease to treat because people don't survive very long," van Baal said. "But if they are old enough to get Alzheimer's one day, they may survive longer and cost more."


You see as a smoker I'm doing my patriotic duty as an American. I support American jobs (tobacco growers and cigarette makers) I shop local (mom and pop liquor store near me) I support the government (cigarette taxes and dying quicker to save them even more money)...but yet we are still considered sub-human...run out of bars...banned from beaches..now even banned from smoking in our own homes. Us smokers should be celebrated for our selfless service to this country. We sacrifice ourselves so that the non-smokers can die a long agonizing death in retirement homes without the guilt of overtaxing the government to provide for them. We should all get a medal of Freedom for smoking! We should get a national holiday! I want a parade dammit with those big balloons of cartoon characters! I am a smoker! I do it for the world!

Vlad_the_Inaner: Gulper Eel: I wonder if these scare stories are coming up only because nobody has yet found a way to pimp sugar with pretentious foodie bullshiat like they do with other unhealthful-when-overdone products like coffee, alcohol, and even salt.

let me introduce you to

Evaporated Cane Juice

[ecx.images-amazon.com image 300x300]


It can't just be marketed like that. It has to be Mountain-Breeze-Evaporated Fair-Trade Mozambican Jus de Canne.

jaylectricity: spaten: Seriously, the left is more authoritarian then the right and have less of a clue.

Actually, anybody who identifies with the "left" or the "right" is more authoritarian than anybody else.

The rest of us just point and laugh.


Better start paying attention, those bastards are in charge. The only shiatheads who get into politics are authoritarian.

GeneralJim: Sugar has long been known to be unhealthy. Many peer-reviewed articles, and media scare stories, including Fark references, have shown that. But the rush to tax and/or ban is simply farking stupid. Let people KNOW, by all means, and then let them decide.

/ Farking control freaks...


What the hell, I'll bite. Evolutionary biology shows that we've evolved to need coercion. The general populace can't control its appetite for sugar, so the state has to do it for them. I, for one, welcome our new Sugar Police overlords. Don't worry, you still have the right to bear arms.

That's not a good idea. The increased periodic heart rate is probably the only thing keeping some people alive.
