Oh wow, and uptake of gym memberships in the population is increasing. Maybe the more people go to the gym, the more fat people also appear...

I've got a better idea, maybe it's because people are so lazy they are using products to do their work which produces CO2. This is causing the correlation, not CO2 making people fat...

Or maybe continue the work indicating a significant part of the obesity problem is either an infectious process that hits metabolism, or an imbalance in the guts microbe population.

As a nursing student and cna that comes from a family of nurses, your blatant projection disgusts me.

The mouse studies showing a connection between gut microbe balance and a transmissible obesity started coming in about 6 years ago and recent studies (Yale - Feb 1, Nature) are still saying the same thing, adding a connection to NAFLD. Human studies are planned since 30 million Americans have NAFLD..

Studies also show a link between alcoholism and genetics, but in the end, all that means is that you must be more careful. With diabetes, it is possible to get it outside of your control, but then again, You can also get lung cancer and never smoke or be exposed to second hand smoke. I know you have Diabetes, I believe you said type II. Are you suggesting by your comment that you had no responsibility or control in how you got it? I see patients daily who claim they did everything right and got type 2 diabetes. They claim they follow the plan given by the dietitian and yet when we take out their trash we find TONS of candy, sugar, and fattening snack wrappers in their trash. We cannot provide them these things, but they prey on the volunteers, and housecleaning who are not familiar with their condition or the nutritionists orders and get it anyway and they constantly claim it isn't theirs. Then you'll catch them eating it or something. They claim they're in physical therapy working out too and they when you review the charts, they haven't been participating properly in PT. Now I see people with type 2 diabetes DAILY with denial of their responsibility when they go into a hyperglycemia state and how they got to their in the first place. So my question to you is, do you claim to lack responsibility for your condition? I know for example if I get lung cancer where I got it from and wont deny it if/when it happens.

Now that you're done with your highly presumptive rant, go look up LADA - latent onset autoimmune diabetes in adults, AKA type 1.5. I was originally misdiagnosed with type 2, and still use the term in casual conversationn, but later it was found to be LADA. Diabetes is not the simple type 1/type 2 but a continuum.

"The startling theory has been put forward by a Danish researchers, who say that the increase in obese people in Denmark is roughly equivalent to the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere."

Nonsense, we all know that the rate of obesity is inversely proportional to the number of landline phones.

Cell phones are making us fatter!

Now that you are done spewing your ignorance, go read this study

Carlsson S, Midthjell K, Tesfamarian MY, Grill V. "Age,Overwieght, and physical inactivity increases the risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults:Results from the Nord-Tr?ndelage Health Study." Diabetologia (2007):55-58, Nov 10

And I quote

This study suggests that increased age, overweight and physical inactivity are as strong risk factors for LADA as for type 2 diabetes. These findings suggest a role for insulin resistance in the pathogenesis of LADA.

I rest my case, you are just like the patients I take care of everyday.

Speaking of projections...

I'm not quite sure you understand what that word means. A projection is when you attribute a negative aspect you yourself have unto other people. It is however not a projection to say someone (who is not you) is doing the same thing as another group. That is grouping and categorizing. I am not diabetic and as for my bad habits, I smoke, I will probably get COPD and or lung cancer. If this happens, if I cant pay for it with my own money I will survive as long as I can without government assistance then off myself as I see no reason to let them pay for my bad habit. I go to great pains to recognize what my health habits will do to me and stay out of active denial. Now where were you going with that?

That didn't apply in my case because I was active as hell, eating right and not obese** when T2 was diagnosed, then later they figured out it was LADA by the antibody profile.

** according to my endocrinologist, and BMI doesn't mean squat because of my heavy musculature.

That didn't apply in my case because I was active as hell and not obese. The best they can figure it was from another condition which can bring on insulin resistance.

So you claim you had nothing to do at all with your development of diabetes? And everyone's innocent in jail and every one of the over 150 diabetics I have worked with over the last three years didnt either. Even the ones who where obese upon admission would claim they where not obese and that they where "naturally big" or "big boned". I don't know your history, their is a very small chance your telling the truth, but it sounds like the same old reflection I have seen out of practically every diabetic I have worked with.

Precisely.

And that is a non-zero quantity, one which you have rammed your head into. You're starting to sound like the physicians who in days past said asthma was "all in there heads" and denied that many ulcers were caused by H. pylori. Not all diabetics follow the cookie cutter rules. Get used to it.

I believe what I said about you is well grounded. But let me ask you this, as someone who also claims to have been a "medical" professional" whatever that means, do you at least admit that denial of condition and causes of said condition is rampant in the diabetic community? Unlike those docters who had the causes of asthma all wrong and science disproved them, science on the causes of diabetes are overwhelmingly on my side just like lung cancer linked to ciggerettes.

ABSOLUTELY!! It's a huge problem, and it causes trouble for those of us that don't fit into that category (witness this thread.) OTOH, I had access to a great team of specialists and took my condition by the neck - dropping my a1c to 5.6 in 3 months and staying there.

      Boston Dynamic's Spot gets 5G upgrade in Ericsson trial
      by Paul Hill



      Ericsson has managed to make Boston Dynamic’s Spot 5G-equipped in a trial with the TDC NET 5G Innovation Hub in Denmark. The two partners worked to get Spot connected up to TDC’s 5G network so that it could be operated across greater distances. Previously, Spot had to be connected to WiFi which limited the connectivity range to just 30 meters.

      To demonstrate the technology in the real world, the partners teamed up with the Hans Christian Anderson Airport and Lorenz Technology to have Spot do security checks on the perimeter fencing around the site. While the demonstration may seem a bit mundane, Spot can navigate uneven terrain, climb stairs and get into small spaces so its use cases are quite extensive. With the 5G upgrade, it should be able to perform these tasks almost anywhere.

      Rules and regulations require that several perimeter-fence checks are carried out several times a day. This is usually performed by employees who go around the fence to check for any damage. The fence inspection technology was developed by the Danish Agency for Education and Research under the Ministry of Education and Research; it used deep learning methods so that Spot could find and report any signs of damage in real-time.

      Commenting on the trial, Head of Ericsson Denmark Niclas Backlund said:

      Ericsson confirmed that the trial, which ended in February, was successful and shows that Spot can be deployed using 5G mobile networks. It said that this trial gives the green light to the industry to find new ways to leverage Spot in the fields of monitoring, image recognition, and video analytics autonomous operations.

      Microsoft plans renewable Danish data centre and 200,000 jobs
      by Paul Hill

      Microsoft has announced that it plans to create a new data centre in Denmark that will totally rely on renewable energy and create around 200,000 news jobs by 2024 as part of #DigitalLeapDenmark. It’s the firm’s biggest investment in the country in the 30 years it has operated there.

      Commenting on the news, Microsoft’s President Brad Smith said:

      With regards to the 200,000 new jobs, Microsoft said that it’s looking to bring digital upskilling to people of all ages and skill levels. To do this, it will provide in-depth training programs and Azure certification for partners and customers, digital education opportunities for children and youth, free access to learning paths, job-seeking tools, and low-cost certifications for job seekers and the unemployed.

      Microsoft said that many Danish organisations operate using Microsoft Cloud to power their business applications. When Microsoft finally brings its new data centre online it will help clean up the carbon footprint of these organisations. The new data centre will also be good for Microsoft’s partner ecosystem which builds innovative solutions on Microsoft Cloud; in Denmark, Microsoft has more than 2,000 partners including Accenture, Netcompany and Venzo.

      Apple to expand green energy production in Europe
      by Paul Hill



      Apple has announced that it will invest in the construction of two onshore wind turbines that will produce 62-gigawatt hours every year. The 200-metre-tall turbines, which are located near Esbjerg in Denmark, will help power Apple’s data centre in Viborg with surplus energy going to the Danish grid.

      Commenting on the move, Lisa Jackson, Apple’s VP of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, said:

      The turbines which will be located in Esbjerg are not the first renewable energy projects that Apple has participated within Scandinavia. Recently, a large solar array in Thisted, Denmark was completed and was the first in the country to be built without the assistance of public funds. Both that project and this are helping to power the Viborg data centre which provides services such as Apple’s App Store, Apple Music, iMessage, Siri, and other services.

      Apple has been working to become carbon neutral for years now and has achieved that goal for its operations. In the next decade, the firm wants to ensure that every Apple device sold will have a net zero climate impact by transitioning all of its suppliers to renewable energy.

      Denmark reviewing whether Google should pay more tax
      by Paul Hill



      Denmark is currently reviewing whether Google needs to pay more tax, according to Denmark’s Finans. Google Denmark ApS reportedly revealed that tax authorities in the country had begun an investigation to check whether it was up to date with all of its tax payments.

      Skattestyrelsen – The Danish Tax Agency – said that it has no comments to make about the case at this time and neither confirmed nor denied that a case is on-going. The country’s Prime Minister, it should be noted, has made several statements saying she is ready to introduce a digital tax that’s aimed at tech giants.

      Commenting on the matter, Christine Sørensen, head of public policy at Google in Denmark, said:

      Several European countries believe that big tech should pay more tax in Europe because people in those countries help create a lot of profit for the firms. In July, the European Union – of which, Denmark is a member – asked the United States, again, to come back to the negotiation table to discuss the issue of digital taxation. Internally, the E.U. is challenged on these plans by member states which prefer to keep taxes low.

      FSFE urges Denmark to make its contact tracing app free software
      by Paul Hill



      The European arm of the Free Software Foundation has urged Denmark to put its Smittestop contact tracing app under a free software license in accordance with the guidance issued by the World Health Organization. According to the Danish government, the source code is not being released to the public because of the supposed risk of security breaches but the FSFE has rebutted this saying that “IT security does not arise through an attackers’ ignorance of the system under attack”.

      According to the World Health Organization, countries should aim to make their contact tracing applications transparent, it said:

      Unlike Denmark, several countries around Europe that have been building contact tracing apps have been following WHO and EU guidance and making their projects available under a free software license. These countries include the UK, Germany, Austria, and Italy. In terms of free software licenses, the GNU project hosts a page explaining the different variations available, with each containing different terms of use for the software.

      FSFE’s effort to have the app put under a free software license is a part of its wider Public Money? Public Code! campaign which urges governments to create legislation which would see any publicly financed software designed for the public sector to be made publicly available under a free software license. It argues that public bodies can benefit from each others' work which will lead to independence from single vendors, potential tax savings, more innovation, and better IT security.
