you know with all this talk on obesity especially in children, some person has come up with a face mask thing that prevents you from being able to eat, a face guard of some sort with a lock???????
how funny is that, but whats even funnier is that people will actually try this out and not only that but parents will buy this for their children, seriously...
i think this is a drastic measure and when it comes to food i don't think this will be a deterrent, children as well as adults will find means to pass food through the metal on this thing even if it means shredding the food through a shredder.
i remember once my cousin was telling me that when she was younger she was slightly chubby and she didn't actually have a problem with it, it was external forces who kept pestering her about her weight so in the end she went and got her mouth wired, metaled, whatever it's called, its like braces but you cant open your mouth fully because your top teeth are stuck to your bottom teeth through the means of metal, scaryyyyyyyy.
she said she could only eat through a straw, basically sharaba (soup) and even then it didn't really affect her weight, poor thing.
some people put padlocks on their fridges and each time the kid wants something they have to go to the key holder (sounds like some lord of the rings story) and obtain permission to open the fridge and even then there will be an interrogation.
apparently according to figures obesity has reached a point where it is claiming 30,000 lives annually in England and it shortens a persons life by 9 years. the thing is we used to point at America for their obesity problem but here in the UK we have a problem as well.
the industry doesn't help whatsoever, its soooo much cheaper to buy junk fatty food than to be healthy, and when a person has a set income and you tell them that they must eat 5 portions of fruit a day, as well as eating other stuff like fish (not fried) etc.. there going to laugh at you because they have bills to pay, rent to pay, they have 5 kids to cloth and feed and for them its cheaper to buy chips from the local chippy.
Britain was much healthier during the war as everything was rationed now adays the lifestyle are totally different.
maybe this contraption isn't such a bad idea.
