UK encourages bribery to get rid of fatties
They've begged, bullied and bludgeoned fat people, now the UK is resorting to bribery by paying people to lose weight. Basically, they're going to try and turn British companies into settings for competitions along the lines of "The Biggest Loser" with cash prizes for the most weight lost.
There are many claims out there on the cost of fat people to the health care system. These costs are used as scare tactics to force both companies and units of government to "do something" about fat people. How are these costs determined?
