Oh do go and fuck off.
Seeing as nearly everything these days is as great a threat as smoking, then we might as well just stick with the smoking and leave it at that?
Now research on over one million people has found that sitting for at least eight hours a day could increase the risk of premature death by up to 60 per cent.
And what precisely is "premature death" anyway? When the Grim Reaper decides to knock on the door then that's it, premature or otherwise. Or does "premature death" mean that you will have just died before the Grim Reaper gets there? It is a term that means fuck all. It can only have meaning if somehow the normal date of your death is known in advance, which it isn't, so no one can say whether your death is premature or not.
The authors urged anyone spending hours at their desk to take a five-minute break every hour, as well as exercise at lunchtimes and evenings. They said sedentary lifestyles were now posing as great a threat to public health as smoking, and were causing more deaths than obesity.
They can "urge" until they are blue in the face but they can still fuck off. So now sitting at a desk is worse than obesity? Has it occurred to them that sitting at a desk could be a factor in the cause of obesity? Well, no because there are the "Sedentary Nannies" and they don't want to tread on the toes of the "Obesity Nannies". Each to his own little pot of research gold?
The authors warn there has been too little progress in tackling the global pandemic of physical inactivity since the 2012 Olympics.
What. The. Fuck?
What in the name of Jayzus has the 2012 Olympics got to do with it? Are they claiming that the Olympics caused a global pandemic, whereby "Infectious Physical Inactivity" spread like a plague across the planet? Is physical inactivity even infectious? That's a new one on me. They had better ban the Olympics so?
Cancer and heart disease were the two most likely causes of death linked to inactivity.
As yes, they would be. There is no point in doing any research if it doesn't prove something causes cancer and heart disease. Seeing as everything causes cancer and heart disease except old age [the primary cause of cancer and heart disease] then we might as well all give up.
The researchers also called for radical changes in government policies to encourage healthier habits.
Just go and FUCK OFF.
Now they are really boiling my piss.
It is not the business of "government policies" to encourage anything, least of all how I live my life. It is none of the governments business what I do, what I don't do and how I do or don't do it. If I want to live a so called unhealthy lifestyle then that is entirely my own business and no one else's, least of all the government's. I am an adult so stop treating me like some infant who needs guidance at every step.
After reading that little piece of liquid diarrhea, I think I need to lie down.
