Whenever medical doctors go on strike, death rates go down! - I'm not making this up. - Type any suitable words or phrases into the search engines and view the evidence for yourself.

The biggest threat to health in the developed world is currently obesity. - Doctors and their retinues are certainly responsible for most cases of obesity and many of the health problems (and consequent premature deaths) that obesity brings in its wake - high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and many, many more. This is because of their constantly reiterated, incorrect, counter-productive and damaging insistence that obesity is caused by over-eating and/or taking too little exercise and that the way to reduce obesity is to eat fewer calories than your body requires.

Obesity is, in the main, an iatrogenic disease.

Calorie counting and advice about increasing exercise and reducing fat intake to reduce obesity are ineffective, counter-productive and often damaging. - See the article in the British Medical Journal of November 2003 BMJ article for actual research on what happens when this advice is followed! - Over 800 obese adults were put on energy deficit diets, given diet sheets and plenty of instruction and help from trained staff, and apparently, visited fortnightly for a year, at the end of which they had GAINED weight! This mirrors the real experience of obese people, viz. - dieting makes you fat.

It is commonly accepted now, except by the 'experts', that less than 5% of dieters actually lose weight, and most gain weight as a result of dieting. - Even the ones who manage to lose weight do not usually improve their health. - See Guardian article for a report in The Guardian of Monday, June 27th 2005. It is about a huge research study of nearly 3000 people over a period of 18 years. The study found that overweight people who diet to reach a healthier weight are more likely to die young than those who remain fat. It also found that dieting causes physiological damage that in the long term can outweigh the benefits of the weight loss.

Contributing to the increase in obesity we have the widespread prescribing of steroids and HRT and other drugs which cause weight gain, and the failure of doctors to adhere to the protocols connected with the prescribing and monitoring of steroids. But pre-eminent, in my opinion, is the catastrophically damaging calorie-reduction advice that continues to be given despite such a wealth of evidence that it is bad advice.
