Al Jazeera Fights the Fat


This Al Jazeera headline provides more evidence that the West is winning hearts and minds in the Middle East:

Obese at greater risk from prostrate cancer

How else to explain everyone's favorite Arab news service reporting on such a quintessentially Western obsession as obesity and its various possible health effects? Who knows, pretty soon they'll even hire a better proofreader who will note that it's prostate cancer, not prostrate.

We'll know the Rubicon–er, the Tigris?–has been crossed when Al Jazeera runs with this related story.
