Good news for salad dodgers!

It's caused by a virus? What a godsend for all the lazy, greedy phat phucks out there!
Although:
Studies on humans have shown that almost a third of obese adults carry the virus compared with 11 per cent of men and women who are not obese.
So what happened to the other two-thirds, then?

Researchers believe that the highly-infectious adenovirus, which can be spread by coughs or through dirty hands
So, being a wheezy, grubby biff makes you fat. Knowing that doesn't make me any more sympathetic than I was before.
Sheepdip and exposure to ebola, thats what they need.

This seems like nonsense - I've been around plenty of porkers and never 'caught' the 'disease' of obesity. I think it is usually 'caught' by too much gob to trough action at MacDonalds, followed by too much clicking the remote in front of the telly.

They will be saying we can catch dyslexia next......

Or does being obese make you more suseptable to the virus? Chicken and egg scenario?

I think you mean a chicken and chips scenario.

As a fat b@stard you'd expect me to say, yeah it's true.

It isnt.

When I diet I lose weight, quite easily at first.

When I excercise and diet I lose weight even more efficiently.

But I get bored of salads and at least twice a week need a pie and walking briskly around my shitty town, particularly in the winter months isnt an attractive or even safe option, even if it is effective in losing weight. So the weight comes back.

Eat less fat, no more than 50gms a day, aim for 35gms if you can and the weight slowly and steadily will come down. Nearly all diets are nonsense.

I'm winning the battle slowly but surely.

Anyway, fat people are harder to kidnap.

Saw a belter on the bus a few weeks back. Some grotesque blubber-bitch was taking a young lad to task for sitting on one of the disabled seats, claiming she needed it. He pulled up his trouser, revealing a prosthetic, and told her, "Losing a leg is a disability, losing self-control in the cake shop isn't". Oh, how I wish I'd thought of that one.

There must be something in the water. All these new 'diseases' and 'genetic predilections' that make you fat yet have never, ever afflicted the human race before the last 20 years. Lies, all of it, designed to remove the need for the weak-willed to feel justifiably bad about themselves.

You can actually catch dyslexia, its called acquired dyslexia, you may find its caused through trauma etc. Acquired learning disabilities may be brought on in line with PTSD. So on a serious note it may affect service personnel more than the average civi. However there is no research I know of to prove this.

Chairborne, I totally agree with you about the less fat intake,if like me they get themselves a Gallbadder problem,(through my own stupidy),just watch the weight roll off them! Yes I admit I was not a willing volunteer. Funny 'nuff I don't miss the stuff any more

Its true, there really is a fat virus. I went to the med centre and got brufen, tubigrip and a two day biff-chit!

Oh please......... When will people accept that weight gain is related to consuming more calories than their body needs?
Accepted. I blame no-one but myself.
I read your previous post and it wasn't meant for you. "Research results" like these make it easy for some people to stop taking responsibility for their actions. And it's not just a weight issue.

Mong spelling -> must be dyslexia
Anti social behaviour -> no he's just intellectual gifted
Never told to sit still by parents -> it's ADHD

IMHO we're medicalising behavioural issues.

An overweight kid who's send to school with a bag of crispies for breakfast doesn't have a virus. Just mong t1t parents.
