  Jobless Mrs Jones told Closer magazine: ‘I understand people’s anger because they’re paying for us, but obesity is an illness.

  ‘We’re not villains – we need NHS support, just like other people who are ill.’

  Mr and Mrs Jones, who live near Truro in Cornwall, admit their diet and lifestyle led to their weight gain.

  They ate up to 10,000 calories a day in fat-laden fry-ups and super-sized McDonald’s meals, and passed their eating habits on to son Stanleigh.

  By the age of four he was eating five Weetabix for breakfast and wearing clothes meant for a 12-year-old. By 13 he weighed 19stone and was diagnosed with borderline diabetes and now takes daily medication.

  待业家中的琼斯太太告诉Closer杂志记者:“我明白大家为何愤怒,因为他们在为我们的治疗买单,但是肥胖的确是一种病。我们不是在恶作剧,我们需要医保的支持,就像其他病人一样。”

  琼斯夫妇住在康瓦耳郡的特鲁罗,他们承认自己的饮食结构和生活方式是肥胖症的病因。

  他们每天吃高脂肪的油炸食品和大量麦当劳快餐,摄入的热量高达1万卡路里。他们还把自己的饮食习惯传给了儿子斯坦利。

  到4岁,斯坦利早餐就能吃5盒维多麦,穿12岁孩子的衣服。到13岁,他的体重约120公斤,处于患糖尿病的临界线,现在每天服用药物。

  Mrs Jones said her own weight problems began as a teenager. The problems continued after her 1985 wedding to car worker David.

  She said: ‘For lunch we’d have egg, sausage and bacon and for dinner we’d eat a large roast and baked apples with lots of sugar.

  ‘By 8pm we’d be eating a fried egg sandwich. We’d snack on super-sized McDonald’s meals.’

  琼斯太太说她的肥胖问题始于青少年时期。自她1985年嫁给汽车工人大卫,肥胖问题仍然存在。

  她说:“我们午餐吃鸡蛋、腊肠和培根,晚餐吃一大盘烤肉和洒满白糖的烤苹果。到晚上8点,我们会吃煎蛋三明治。零食会吃一大包麦当劳快餐。”

  She was prescribed up to 29 tablets a day for her weight-related health problems, at a cost of ?5,000 a month. She says she took them for 15 years, leaving taxpayers a ?900,000 bill.

  为了解决肥胖问题,她每天得吃29片药丸,每月得花5000英镑医疗费。她说她吃了15年的药,给纳税人留下了一笔90万英镑的账单。

  Emma Boon of the Taxpayers’ Alliance said: ‘Patients are being denied life-saving treatments so it’s staggering that cheaper alternatives aren’t being explored for obesity, like diet and exercise.’

  纳税人联盟的爱玛·布恩说:“患者无法接受治疗以续命,所以不开发类似饮食控制和锻炼的低成本治疗方法会很可怕。”
