The Healthy Ireland survey has been published.
It states that 60% of the population of Ireland is overweight or obese.
I have a pair of eyes. Two of them to be precise [though I don’t like to brag] and I have been using them on and off for most of my life. Now in the course of my travels you would imagine I would have seen these porkers waddling around? After all, three out of every five is a lot so I must have seen them all around me? But I haven’t.
Is it possible that all those fatties are confined to one county and that’s the county where they took the survey? That would certainly explain things, though I would imagine the island would be in great danger of capsizing.
Or maybe there is something wrong with my glasses and the lardarses are all around me but I see them as normal? I’ll check that one out when I visit the ophthalmologist next week.
There was a bloke on the news last night discussing this report. He was happy with the decrease in smoking levels [which apparently is entirely down to the “plain packs”] but was horrified that we just aren’t taking enough exercise. Did we not realise just how unhealthy that is?
We need to do so much more for the sake of our health. We must become a healthy country otherwise we will a die in screaming agony.
We need to be leaner and fitter. Our diet must change and we must get more exercise.
Nag. Nag. Nag.
On second thoughts though, maybe he was talking about the National Beef Herd?
