Obese People Reluctant to Face Health Risk

Dead weight may lead to an early grave..

Sweden’s health authorities are worried by the fact that people with low-level education are questioning the destructive role of obesity as one of the main causes of different kinds of cancer. A recent opinion poll shows that skepticism towards the long since scientifically established findings is wide-spread among low-income obese people lacking high grades of education.

The poll also revealed that Stockholm’s blue-collar suburb Rinkeby has six times as many fat inhabitants as the upper-class residential area of Djursholm.
