The Dom Post reports that “the growing obesity epidemic is likely to be the target of a parliamentary inquiry”.
First of all it isn’t an epidemic. An epidemic is defined as a widespread outbreak of a disease and I’m sorry but going to KFC too often is not a disease.
Secondly isn’t having a group of MPs inquire into it, like asking Black Power to inquire into gang violence. And I can make that joke being shall we say non-anorexic myself.
Thirdly again it is NOT an epidemic. Please stop bastardising the English language. Yes I know it takes a couple more words to say “widespread prevalence of” but this is why we teach English in schools.
