Health Experts: Obesity Fuelling Vastly Higher COVID Death Toll

This won’t sit well with the ‘body positivity’ movement

Health experts have warned that there is a direct correlation between obesity and higher COVID-19 death tolls across the globe, findings that will not jive well with the woke trend to promote being overweight as ‘body positivity’.

The London Telegraph reports that a study of 100 countries by the World Obesity Federation found that 2.2 million of 2.5 million deaths occurred in countries with high levels of obesity.

The study noted that death rates were discovered to be 10 times higher in nations where more than 50% the population was overweight. 

According to the study, in countries without obesity problems, the death rate from the virus was no higher than 10 per 100,000 population.

“We now know that an overweight population is the next pandemic waiting to happen,” noted Dr Tim Lobstein, the author of the report, senior policy adviser to the World Obesity Federation and visiting professor at the University of Sydney.

Britain, which has the third highest COVID death rate in the world, also has fourth highest obesity rate. On the flip side, Vietnam has one of the lowest levels of obesity in the world, and also has the lowest COVID death rate.

The new study backs up findings from Lancet published research last year which noted that obesity increases the risk of death from Covid-19 by around 50 per cent.

The findings have prompted stark warnings from the World Health Organisation, with Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general noting “This report must act as a wake-up call to governments globally. The correlation between obesity and mortality rates from Covid-19 is clear and compelling.”

The CDC has also warned that obesity is a clear factor in coronavirus death rates.

All of these scientific facts will likely be ignored by the ‘body positivity’ movement, which promotes being obese as a civil rights cause.

Multinational companies, big tech and the entertainment industry are all on board with the ludicrous woke ideology, with the likes of Instagram promoting obesity while simultaneously refusing content that encourages maintaining healthy fit bodies.

Anyone who dares to promote a healthy lifestyle or campaign against junk food addiction is labeled a ‘fat shamer’:

However, studies also show that fat shaming works.

A wide ranging study by obesity experts in 2014 found that a “desire to improve self-worth” was one of the most important motivating factors encouraging people to lose weight.

The fact is if you’re fat, you are 50% more likely to die from COVID.

Obesity is linked to a myriad of other horrendous, life-threatening diseases and conditions, including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, and osteoarthritis.

Promoting ‘fat acceptance’ is as ludicrous as promoting ‘smoker positivity’.

Despite Mandates, Biden Commerce Secretary Claims “Nobody Is Being Forced” To Take COVID Vaccine

“There’s always been a choice: If you do not want to get vaccinated, you can work from home, shop online.”

Joe Biden’s Commerce Secretary has claimed that “nobody is being forced” to get vaccinated, despite last week’s announcement that millions of Americans will be mandated to take the shot in order to go to work.

Gina Raimondo made the comments Tuesday in an interview on MSNBC, after host Stephanie Ruhle proclaimed she was “puzzled by people that continue to say they’re forced to get vaccinated here.”

Watch:

The pair seriously suggested that anyone who doesn’t want to or can’t get vaccinated can simply stay at home and never go outside.

“There’s always been a choice: If you do not want to get vaccinated, you can work from home. You can homeschool your children. You can shop online,” Ruhle declared, adding “If you didn’t want to vaccinate your kids, you can homeschool, and people have done it for years.”

“We are not being forced,” Raimondo again claimed, stating “You can work from home, get tested on a weekly basis,” and adding “I think this is smart public policy and great leadership by the president.” 

There you have it, if you don’t take the vaccine just stay at home and have no life, no one is forcing you. In fact, it’s a long standing American tradition.

As we previously reported, Police and firefighters are among the groups who are resisting, bringing lawsuits against the mandates.

There has also been significant resistance among military service members, who will be mandated to take the shots.

In the latest example a US Army Lieutenant Colonel resigned and gave up his pension after more than 19 years of service, labelling the mandate “unethical, immoral and tyrannical.”

Lt Col Paul Douglas Hague wrote a now viral resignation letter, explaining how he will not “sit still and allow a serum to be injected into my flesh against my will and better judgement.”

Hague, who is stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, further declared “It is impossible for this so-called ‘vaccine’ to have been studied adequately to determine the long term effects,” adding “it simply has not existed for enough time and any claim otherwise is blatantly ignorant and likely an outright lie driven by negligent political agenda.”

The Lt Col further described the vaccine mandate as part of “an ideologically Marxist takeover of the military and United States government.”

“We are watching the fall of liberty at this moment,” Hague asserted.

    Biden Surgeon General Claims Vaccine Mandates Are “Part Of A Long Tradition” In U.S.

    “This is what we’ve got to do to go back to normal.”

    Appearing on NBC News Sunday, Biden Surgeon General Vivek Murthy ludicrously claimed that the government putting requirements on people to take vaccines is a long held American tradition.

    Meet The Press host Chuck Todd asked Murthy why Biden has flip flopped on vaccine mandates after previously saying the government shouldn’t get involved in such policies.

    Murthy pulled out the stock answer, “from the beginning the president and all of us have said we’ve got to use every lever we have in order to fight this pandemic. And that’s what you see happening right now.”

    Murthy added that the coming months would see the Biden adminstration “expanding the vaccination effort through a combination of mandates and access.”

    When Todd noted that “some people take the mandate as not a moment of unity, but as sort of a divisive weapon,” Murthy replied “I’d say, Chuck, that the requirements for vaccination are part of a long tradition that we have in this country of taking steps as a collective to keep people safe.”

    He reiterated, “we have a tradition in our country, Chuck, of taking steps, you know, as a collective to protect the broader community. And that’s what these requirements represent.” 

    Murthy added, “we know that when people wear masks all together, that gives us our greatest chance of reducing infection. When people get vaccinated, that gives us our greatest chance of keeping workplaces and schools safe. And that’s what we’ve got to do.”

    Huh? It’s hard to recall that long held American tradition.

    Watch:

    In a further appearance on CNN, Murthy claimed that many businesses are “relieved” that Biden has placed mandates on them to get employees vaccinated, adding “this is what we’ve got to do to go back to normal.”

    Video: MSNBC Host Claims COVID Is Like A 9/11 Death Toll “Every Two Days”

    Uses anniversary of terrorist atrocity to defend Biden vaccine mandates

    In remarkably ill thought out comments, MSNBC Nicolle Wallace claimed during the network’s coverage of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that the current COVID situation in America is like a 9/11 happening “every two days.”

    In cringe anchor small talk, fake news originator Brian Williams asked Wallace “Are you ever struck by the thought that on the 40th, 50th anniversary we will look back, perhaps, at some of these pictures and be reminded, oh, yeah, that’s when we were all wearing masks?” 

    Williams added, “That’s when even our presidents and former presidents had to wear masks in public because of our uncontrolled pandemic in 2021?” 

    Wallace then responded, “I think there are so many parallels to how much more difficult it is to do any of the things that anyone who has spoken today has done, to call the country to a higher purpose.” 

    Shamelessly using 9/11 to defend Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates, Wallace then said “You’ve got politicians and prominent folks in the media outraged by steps that a president, not too many presidents after the one we heard from today, would try to save his country from an unthinkable death toll.”

    Wallace then declared that “As many people die every two days as died on September 11 in this country, who don’t have to die.”

    Watch:

    Is Wallace getting her numbers from Stephen King?
