Perhaps so, but it is clear in that case that they are mistaking correlation for causation.

They obviously are starting out from a base position that low fat, high carb, high 'grains' is definitely the way to go. And then when this diet still results in loads of fat people, they're like hmm, how strange? Well it can't be the diet because WE KNOW that's not a problem. So... erm... MICROBES! DIVERSITY!

ok m8

And all that crap about 'portion sizes' basically telling people to half starve themselves and feel guilty whenever they eat anything. That is so totally unnecessary, if you eat properly. Which is to say if you're eating the right things, you can eat as much as you want without worrying about portions.

Oh really professor? And what is your solution to increasing the 'diversity' of our microbes?

Ah! To eat the exact same things that everyone else advises to eat, high carb, lots of grains, low fat. The diet that led to the obesity epidemic in the first place.


All of this is nonsense and has been debunked, but keeps being repeated as if it's fact. How do they account for the fact that everyone who eats high fat, low carb loses weight and keeps it off? What sort of 'scientists' ignore readily reproducible, verifiable facts?

The BBC laughably calls this 'The Truth about obesity'.

The real truth is very simple and doesn't need all the gobbledygook about 'diversity of microbes'.
Not a fact. Stop telling fibs.

Fashion chain New Look is reviewing its prices after an outcry that some larger-sized clothes were more expensive than those in smaller sizes.

The High Street retailer said it was hoping to "ensure pricing differences like these" did not happen in future.

It comes after a shopper saw trousers in its Curves range cost 15% more than a pair in the main collection.

The issue has divided opinion over whether using more material should mean higher prices.

Divided opinion? You mean between people who are as thick as fuck, and those who aren't?

Always thought it was strange that my small jeans cost the same as some hideous fat cunt's jeans... when clearly there is more production costs involved in the fat cunt sizes.

It's like McDonalds saying every burger is the same price regardless of the size.

Makes sense on one level to charge more, but could throw up more questions. What is the 'base price' for an item of clothing? Small? Extra small? Or medium? What are we trying to say, we charge people more for being an unhealthy weight, so do we charge extra for smaller sizes as well to discourage people from being too thin? With the 'goldilocks' size being the cheapest and the incentive for people to get to? Or is it purely on fabric use, so we give discounts to smaller sized people? Would mediums and larges be happy paying more than smalls and extra smalls, especially when the amount of fabric is affected by height, something tall people can't do anything about. They'd be paying more, all the time, and they might actually be healthier than the skinny person.

I get the logic of certain clothes items being charged differently, but on a practical basis in general a fixed cost regardless of your size is actually probably the easiest and fairest thing.

Simple - charge like every other product in the world, production cost * mark-up.

It's not though really, because every person can decide on a burger size by sheer preference. You can't just choose to be shorter in order get the cheaper price for a jacket or a pair of jeans etc.

In order to be fair you'd need to have a complicated price model that determines more than just your required size based on your unchangeable attributes, but the amount of body fat or something. It'd be a total mess and the cost of a system would certainly eclipse the difference material cost, which when you consider how cheaply clothes are made anyway, I don't think places like Next and Asos lose any sleep over.

For what it's worth, there is apparently an argument that the costs are the same - Because for a lot of clothes the way they are cut takes the same amount of material, but more is wasted on the smaller sizes.

Sounds like a storm in a tea cup anyway.
