Hey, Bob Geldof! Thanks for all the heart disease and diabetes:

A staggering one billion of the world’s population of 6.45 billion is overweight, warns the World Health Organization. And rates of overweight and obesity are rising dramatically in poorer countries, not just wealthy nations.

If the current trend continues, by 2015 there will be 1.5 billion overweight people in the world. Being overweight or obese greatly increases a person’s risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other chronic diseases.

Look for Saint Bob to gather around him the world’s lamest singers for a rousing recording of Starve the World:

While much about ageing remains a mystery, there seems to be at least one way to stay alive longer: adopting the brutal diet known as caloric restriction. Although it has not yet been proved to work for people, in every animal species on which it has been tested it extends lifespan by up to 50 per cent.

Let’s test it on musicians.
