    Thought they were already testing for obesity?

    Keep smokers and fatties out - Doctors

    By Catherine Masters

    Potential immigrants should be screened for obesity and smoking habits because they place such a heavy burden on health services, respiratory specialists have suggested.

    Doctors Jeff Garrett and Andy Veale from Middlemore Hospital in South Auckland say obesity is a huge and increasing problem in Counties Manukau but chronic health disorders are not funded adequately.

    Obesity leads to a range of problems, from diabetes and cancers to respiratory disease and sleep disorders, and severely stretches an already cash-strapped budget, they say.

    Their comments follow the death of Samoan mother Folole Muliaga, who was obese. She died after her power was cut off and she could not use her breathing machine.

    Maybe they shouldn't let the skinny people in either! Let's not forget the drunks!

    Oh dear, I guess that leaves me out!

    I may be "slim" but whether you get the pie or not depends entirely on what type of pie it is!
