Obesity increases risk of dying from COVID-19 by nearly 40%

A major problem with policy-making concerning the COVID-19 Wuhan coronavirus is its novelty, which means we just don’t know a lot about this virus.

Since its outbreak in China last year (most probably as early as October 2019), scientists worldwide have been furiously studying the virus, while more people have been and are being tested for the virus. As a result, we now know that the death rate of COVID-19 is much lower than we’d been told — 0.3-0.4% instead of 3.0-4.0%. (More on Covid-19’s inflated death rate in a post to come.)

That being said, a mortality rate of 0.3% to 0.4% is still 3 to 4 times more dangerous than the seasonal flu, also a coronavirus, the death rate of which is about 0.1%. Professor Calum Semple, a consultant respiratory pediatrician from Liverpool University, said the mortality rate of Covid-19 is similar to those hospitalized with Ebola:

“Covid-19 is a very serious disease. Crude hospital case fatality rate is of the same magnitude as Ebola. And people don’t get this. If you come into hospital with Covid-19 disease and you’re sick enough to be admitted, crude case fatality rate is sitting somewhere between 35 and 40 per cent. And that’s the same case crude case fatality rate for someone admitted to hospital with Ebola…. [P]eople need to…get it into their heads. This is an incredibly dangerous disease.”

You probably already know that the most vulnerable population are (CDC):

  • The elderly (65 age and older).
  • Those living in a nursing home or long-term care facility.
  • Those with underlying medical conditions (“co-morbidities”) of diabetes, respiratory diseases including COPD and (moderate to severe) asthma, hypertension and serious heart conditions, chronic kidney disease (undergoing dialysis), liver disease, and immuno-compromised. Diabetes, according to data from several sources, increases the risk of death from Covid-19 up to 50% because it is a major risk factor for the development of severe pneumonia and sepsis due to virus infections. (Medscape, April 28, 2020)
  • Males: a not-yet-published study suggests that the testes/testicles might act as a reservoir for SARS-CoV-2 or the Wuhan virus. (Medical News Today, April 28, 2020)

A less publicized risk factor is obesity.

Thomas Burrows reports for The Sun, April 29, 2020, that according to new research on nearly 17,000 Brits with Covid-19 admitted to 166 UK hospitals, the largest study of its kind ouside of China, obesity increases the risk of dying from Covid-19 by as much as 37%.

The obesity trend was not identified in China because fewer people there are extremely fat.

Cardiologist Aseem Malhotra said said UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was so badly affected by Covid-19 because he is “significantly” overweight, and that “slimmer” members of the cabinet, including Matt Hancock, were not hospitalized and recovered much more quickly.

Note that obesity is a causal factor for many of the other Covid-19 co-morbidities — those of diabetes, respiratory and cardiac diseases.

A 2012 study warned that at the rate we’re going, by the year 2030, in 10 years, more than 4 of every 10 (42%) Americans may become obese and 11% severely obese. 

Obesity is more than being over weight. The Centers for Disease Control classify a body mass index (BMI) of between 25 and 29.9 as “overweight,” anything above that as obese:

  • “Normal weight” means a BMI of 18.5–24.9
  • “Over weight” means a BMI of 25.0–29.9
  • “Obesity” means a BMI of 30.0–34.9
  • “Severe obesity” means a BMI of 35.0–39.9
  • “Morbid obesity” means a BMI of 40 or over

BMI is calculated by dividing a person’s mass (weight) by the square of his or her height, typically expressed either in metric or lbs. and inches. This is the formula:

BMI = mass (lb) ÷ (height in inches)² x 703

Obese model Tess Holliday

Obesity being a 37% higher risk for dying from Covid-19 makes the recent bizarre media celebration of obese women like model Tess Holliday and rapper Lizzo even more perverse and objectionable.

Visual proof: Obese singer Lizzo wears bikini during vacation in Brazil

Need more proof that Jillian Michaels was correct about singer Lizzo and her weight?

Here it is (NSFW):

This womyn is 31 years old. She is 5’10” and weighs 264 pounds. According to the CDC BMI calculator, Lizzo’s BMI is 37.9 which means she falls in the “obese” category.

Despite the health dangers of obesity, the media and pop culture continue to push Lizzo as a “body positivity” influencer.

Yuck. I see nothing positive about this body.

Celebrity trainer blasted for stating the truth about obesity

Last December, celebrity personal trainer Jillian Michaels went against the “body positivity” crowd by stating the truth. She believes that this movement has helped to improve people’s lives yet she’s concerned about the health implications.

From People Magazine: I think we’re politically correct to the point of endangering people. Yes, we want to be inclusive of everyone [and respect that] everyone comes in all different shapes and sizes. That nobody should ever be body shamed or fat shamed or excluded and that everyone is equally deserving and should feel equally valuable.

“Obesity in itself is not something that should be glamorized. But we’ve become so politically correct that no one wants to say it.”

“I think the world has shifted to a place where that format and messaging is considered fat shaming. But it isn’t, and it’s not meant to be. Now we’ve gone too far in the opposite direction.”

Last week she specifically called out the glamorizing of obese singer, Rizzo who has been heralded for her body positivity. See examples here and here.

Jillian recently said in an interview with BuzzFeed: Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren’t we celebrating her music? ‘Cause it isn’t gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes.”

Liberals blasted Jillian for daring to speak the truth about the consequences of obesity. As reported by Page Six:

“The only reason we know who Jillian Michaels is, is because of a reality show where people used incredibly unhealthy practices in order to lose as much weight as possible,” wrote one tweeter, “not to become the most physically fit or to get the healthiest vitals – in a dangerously short time.”

Another follower called her statements “incredibly gross” while another made note of the “Good as Hell” singer’s energetic stage show.

“Lizzo spends hours every night singing and playing the flute during intensive dance cardio. Just admit that the only self worth you’ve found for yourself is in your thinness, Jillian, then go to therapy & do the work to love yourself.”

Jillian then posted to Instagram: “As I’ve stated repeatedly, we are all beautiful, worthy and equally deserving. I also feel strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity – heart disease, diabetes, cancer to name only a few. I would never with these for ANYONE and I would hope we prioritize our health because we LOVE ourselves and our bodies.”

How pathetic that stating the obvious truths about obesity is considered “incredibly gross.”

Keep your kids far, far away from Lakers games: Obese singer Lizzo twerks in a thong at Staples Center

I’ve told you about the rapper/singer Lizzo before. She’s an obese woman who is promoted in fashion magazines in the name of “inclusivity.”

She admits to being fat yet loves that “insecurity.”

Of course she makes no mention of the health tolls and costs that go along with that “insecurity.”

Turns out not only is she fat, she has a FOUL mouth and loves showing off her fat butt in public.

The singer was recently at a Lakers game and gave the audience a full view of her insecurities.

Videos are NSFW.

Girl, no one at a basketball game with their child wants to see that. What a narcissist she is.

Unhealthy: Elle magazine features obese rapper in order to promote “inclusivity”

Lizzo is a 31-year-old rapper from Detroit. She’s all the rage now, even with failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeting about her. According to HuffPo, “It’s truly something.”

Whatever.

This obese womyn is being promoted by the media as a proud big girl. Lizzo has stated, “I’m 5’10”, I’m big and I’ve always been this way – even when I was young I always had this mental gigantism where I felt bigger than I actually was and I still do.”

Lizzo is 5’10” and weighs 250 pounds. Her BMI is 35.9 indicating her weight is in the obese category for adults of her height.

Her obesity is being promoted in the Elle fashion magazine as “What the World Needs Now Is More Lizzo.”

Excerpts from the Elle article pushing this obesity inclusivity:

“Also helpful: regular self-care, which goes hand in hand with her message of self-love. She’s become something of an icon for the latter, but as with her success as an artist, those feelings of confidence and empowerment are hard-earned. “I take self-love very seriously. And I take it seriously because when I was younger, I wanted to change everything about myself,” she says. “I didn’t love who I was.

And the reason I didn’t love who I was is because I was told I wasn’t lovable by the media, by [people at] school, by not seeing myself in beauty ads, by not seeing myself in television…by lack of representation. My self-hatred got so bad that I was fantasizing about being other people. But you can’t live your life trying to be somebody else. What’s the point?”

As with all thing progressive, creating your “own truths” is only what matters. Not reality. Hence being obese is now a form of “body positivity.”

Self care and empowerment does not mean putting your physical being in the obese category, ladies. Seriously.

Also, please pick a side. Obesity and health care costs continue to rise yet you promote this body image as if there was no way to prevent it. All in the name of “inclusivity.”
