Hi all,

We’ve all been a bit quiet on here recently. Sorry to hear of your health problems Penny, hope you get the right treatment soon.

I don’t know what to make of the article about statins, I have no experience. I understand they work to lower cholesterol, but that is just one problem associated with obesity. They’re not going to solve all the other issues, the strain on your heart and joints or the cancers.

I see the reasons for my own obesity and I understand what made me the way I was but I find it hard to understand why there is a national trend for us to be fatter. It must be that the nation’s lifestyle has changed so we are more sedentary and prone to snack on junk food. The change must be made in childhood, more sports and playing out and health education from infant school level. Less TV and video games at home perhaps.
