Dear MEL Topic Readers,

‘I was too fat,’ Boris Johnson says in UK launch to tackle obesity

Born in 1964, he was 55 when he was hospitalized for Covid-19 infection this past April, where he learned a lifelong lesson. He had been overweight. Now the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, wants others to follow his suit to lose weight. This is a 180-degree turn from his previous criticism on previous governments’ proposal to similar moves. However, having spent in an intensive care unit for a few days wandering between life and death, he is now determined to promote healthier Britain. Indeed, over 60% of British adults are either overweight or obese. Also, 20% of children aged 10-11 are obese, which could pose a higher risk of diabetes and heart diseases in the future.

So, in order to endorse the government’s action to encourage people to lose weight, he posted a video to his Twitter account about his own determination and action.

Yes, anyone can change his or her mind, but it’s not easy to change others’.

Enjoy reading the article and watch the video to learn about once over-weighed and coronavirus-infected prime minister’s message.
