Ok, this is getting ridiculous, articles on the BBC (the labour party's publicity wing) are now at 1 a week.
Obese people may be less likely to develop prostate cancer but more likely to die of the disease, a study says.
Researchers found the cancer was much less likely to develop in people who are insulin resistant - a pre-diabetes condition linked to obesity.
But they were more likely to develop an aggressive form of the disease likely to spread to other parts of the body.
The study involving 784 men, by Sweden's Umea University, is published in the International Journal of Cancer.
This really is a surge of articles and propaganda aimed squarely at obesity.
But why the scaremongering - wouldn't simple advice be better?
