WWF warns high fuel prices in US may cause extinction of obese people.

The Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) has issued a stark warning that high fuel prices in the US are leading to a dangerous reduction in the numbers of fat Americans. According to statistics cited by the organisation, there is a direct link between rising oil prices and decreasing numbers of obese people. "If the situation continues, there may be no obese people left by 2021." warned WWF spokesman Anne Such.

The problem is now so serious that the WWF is considering pressing for the clinically obese to be placed on the list of endangered species. At present, a number of reservations such as McDonalds and KFC are helping to sustain numbers, but fears are continuing that ever-rising fuel prices may lead to a continued decimation in the number of obese people able to seek help at these restaurant chains, resulting in tragic levels of exercise and weight loss.
