Food Corporations in charge of government nutritional policy Cameron, David
[Blaming the victims. The Government creates obesity by being in bed with Food Inc, which suppresses the causes of Obesity, Wheat (Food pyramid), MSG, Aspartame, Sugar... "He also wants drug and alcohol addicts on welfare to be made to have treatment so they can get a job." They also suppress the real cures for drug addiction like Nutritional medicine (Heroin and Vitamin C Alcohol) by being in bed with the Drug Corporations. They put you on pharma drugs like Morphine. 'Treatment' is a whole world away from cure, why they suppressed non-Medical Doctors (Allopaths) from using the word 'cure', too threatening to their non-cure 'treatment' (palliation ££) medicine. "Medications are palliatives. They are not designed to cure the degenerative diseases of the body."----F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.
Go on a diet... or lose your benefits: PM vows £500million crackdown on disability handouts

Obese people could be forced to get help for their ‘treatable’ condition or have their benefits cut, David Cameron will announce today.
He also wants drug and alcohol addicts on welfare to be made to have treatment so they can get a job.
The proposed overhaul of the benefits system could save Britain £500million a year in sickness payments.
Prime Minister David Cameron has vowed to pull the plug on benefits for obese people or those with other treatable conditions such as alcoholism or drug addiction in a bid to save £500million-a-year in welfare

Christina Briggs believes cash incentives will help her lose...
The Prime Minister, who has asked a government health adviser to ‘rapidly’ review the Conservatives’ plans, will claim it is wrong that people are allowed to languish on welfare as a result of their lifestyle ‘choice’.
‘Too many people are stuck on sickness benefits because of issues that could be addressed but instead are not,’ he will say.
‘Some have drug or alcohol problems but refuse treatment. In other cases, people have problems with their weight that could be addressed – but instead a life on benefits rather than work becomes the choice. It is not fair to ask hard-working taxpayers to fund the benefits of people who refuse to accept the support and treatment that could help them get back to a life of work.’

Under one plan being looked at by the party, almost 2,000 people registered as long-term sick because of obesity would face having their benefits docked unless they agreed to lose weight.
Around 56,000 people on the register say their primary condition is alcoholism. Almost 34,000 cite drug dependency. On average these 90,000 people get about £100 a week in sickness benefits and are entitled to other payments, such as housing and council tax benefits.
They are already offered treatment, such as courses and medication, to kick their habit and get back to work. But there is no legal requirement to accept the help.
Dame Carol Black, chairman of the Nuffield Trust and an adviser to the Department of Health, will now examine whether ‘incentives’ are needed. The proposals are likely to anger disability campaigners, who claim government efforts to get the long-term sick back to work have already gone too far.

But Dame Carol says: ‘I am deeply interested in trying to overcome the challenges these types of benefit claimants pose.
‘These people, in addition to their long-term conditions and lifestyle issues, suffer the great disadvantage of not being engaged in the world of work – such an important feature of society.’
Mr Cameron will say that the next Conservative government is determined to ensure ‘that the hardest to help’ receive the support they need to improve their lives.
‘That is why I have asked Professor Dame Carol Black to undertake a rapid review into how best to support those suffering from long-term yet treatable conditions back into work.’
