I recently tweeted on the @bariquins account an article about crash test dummies becoming larger to mimic the increasing number of drivers and passengers suffering from obesity. That reminded me of some research that I had previously found.
The research concerned a study which concluded that obese drivers were more likely to die in road traffic collisions. Statistics were gathered from fatal collisions between 1999 and 2012 in America. Althoug…

To continue with a look at the frequency of obesity around the world (I’ve already covered Europe and the American states), I thought that this month that I would concentrate on the Middle Eastern countries which incorporates the Gulf states too.

‘Tis the season of goodwill. It’s just a shame that there’s only a season of it, rather than continuing forever. So, as it is that time of year, this month I’m going to look at some of the less-than-flattering ways of moving plus-size people. That said, it really is a case of ‘necessity being the mother of invention’.
Even when a Fire Service has the forethought to equip themselves properly, as Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service has with their purchase of a …
