Quiz Question

How many people from Lewes died and had 'obesity' recorded on their death certificate between 2000-2008?

Any guesses?

I only know the answer to this because Norman Baker asked the question in Parliament yesterday.

It depends on whether one very large person counts as two or three I guess?

Probably none, surely they die from obesity related diseases such as diabetes?
Anyhow, what's the answer, I can't wait any longer?

The answer is 5.

Obesity listed as underlying (principal) cause of death in one recorded case; five if secondary (contributory) factors included.
I suppose that practitioners are faced with a dilemma when stating cause of death on a death certificate...
Should the actual cause of death be recorded (heart attack, stroke) or the condition that triggered cessation of life?
Might the practitioner offend relatives with a verdict of obesity?
Would obesity verdict affect life insurances etc?

Why did Norm ask the question in the first place?

Because he was too embarassed to ask how many people have died waiting for LDC to stop demolishing historic structures

I wonder if that was for the whole district, or just the town?
Spinster, weight and height usually have to be given when you apply for life insurance and is one of the factors taken into account by actuaries. Lardarses pay higher premiums, as they're more likely to pop off early.
Once someone's got a policy, they can't refuse to pay out because they ate all the pies, but they can if they lied about their gutbucket tendencies when taking out the policy.

A.C.T you seem a little hard on our plump brothers and sisters. Have you had a bad experience with one?

No - unless you count myself! If there's a pie shortage, it'll be my fault.

I blame lardarses for the state of the NHS. they are taking up all the beds and then breaking them. and they eat too much food.
