World's fattest man Keith Martin dies, aged 44

     A Brit who was officially the fattest man in the world has died, it emerged today.

Keith Martin - who weighed an astonishing 70 stone at his heaviest - died from pneumonia following a lengthy battle with his weight. His death at the age of 44 came just eight months after Keith had undergone a successful gastric sleeve which removed three-quarters of his stomach.
    The surgeon who tried to save his life with life-changing weight-loss surgery is calling for the government to swiftly impose a fast-food tax.Unemployed Keith admitted much of the weight had come from eating huge amounts of super-cheap fast food.He would gorge on 20,000 calories a day - almost 10 times the recommended amount - having six-egg fry-ups for breakfast then pizzas, kebabs, Chinese takeaways and Big Macs for lunch and dinner all washed down with six pints of coffee and two litres of fizzy drinks.He'd also snack on sandwiches, chocolate, crisps, sweets and biscuits. His surgeon Kesava Mannur said: "Keith, like many people, had some emotional issues and he turned to food for comfort. "That type of behaviour is nothing new, but what is new is how easy it is for people in that situation to buy a lot of cheap junk food."Following his death in March, Keith left behind his two sisters - Sharon and Tina - who cared for him for many years leading up to his death. Speaking from the home they shared in west London, Tina said "We're still grieving. We miss him very much."
      Head surgeon Mr Mannur, who operated on Keith at Homerton Hospital last year, wants more obese people to be offered gastric surgeries on the NHS.He said if Mr Martin had lived he would have lost hundreds of pounds and regained his ability to walk and live a normal life.Mr Mannur said: "The government needs to make unhealthy fast food more expensive."Otherwise we'll continue to see more and more people like Keith. In the past few years I have treated several people who weighed between 45-60 stone.A hopeful Keith had previously said: "I'd resigned myself that either I was going to die in my bed or I was going to kill myself.But now I think 'you stupid person'.I'm a lot more confident than I used to be. I feel a lot happier.In a few months' time I want to be up and walking .I know the only person to blame is me. All those years wasted. I'm not going to waste anymore of it. "
     Having been stuck in his house for ten years and bedridden for several years due to his size, Keith was able to drop 25 stone in order to qualify for the surgery after switching to a 2,000 calorie a day diet.But just a week after the procedure he discharged himself from the hospital, against doctors' orders, because he was homesick.By October 2013 he was back in hospital with septic shock and dehydration.Two weeks later he contracted pneumonia. Keith spent four months in hospital before he was released n February 2014, having been deemed medically fit.His weight had dropped to 39 stone After being transported home he said: "I feel great about surviving the operation."It gives me a chance now to go do some of the things I wanted to do - to get myself up and walking, take my dog Benji out for a walk."This is the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new chapter. Where it takes me I don't know, but it's going to be fun finding out."But just a month later he was dead. culled

I'm single now ... 'F***' KARRUECHE - CHRIS BROWN

     Chris Brown has never been good at breaking up with women ... something he proved again Friday night in L.A. during a concert -- when he formally announced he's single by putting Karrueche on blast.It all went down at Power 106's annual Cali Christmas ... when halfway through Brown's set the singer asked the crowd if there were any single women in the house.After a brief pause, you hear Chris say, "I'm single too!" ... he then throws a heaping pile of shade at his now ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, saying, "F*** that b****!"
But he wasn't done ... after the show the singer posted a picture on Instagram -- with THREE Kardashian's on his lap, which frankly sounds impossible.

Sad: Baby Girl Dies after being Kissed by Mystery Person with Virus

     A newborn baby has died after being kissed by a mystery person with cold sores.
Little Eloise Lampton was born healthily on November 1 via caesarean but died just 24 days later after becoming infected with the herpes virus, which proved fatal. Her devastated parents, Sarah Pugh, 28, and Douglas Lampton, don't even know who unknowingly passed the infection onto their newborn daughter.Talking to DailyMail, Ms Pugh said:'Doctors initially thought it was a feeding issue. When we came home she just wanted to sleep... she wasn't a crying baby.' 

     But Eloise lost almost a kilo in the week after her birth and her health started to deteriorate quickly.She was taken to Brisbane's Mater Hospital and was placed on a machine to keep her alive as doctors scrambled to find out what was wrong.'It all happened so quickly, like within hours. She was in the hospital and we thought she was fine, then that night we were told she might not survive the night.' Doctors informed Eloise's parents, who have three other children, that it was the herpes virus causing their daughter's illness after two days on the machine.
    'I was shocked. I was devastated to know she was born healthy and then this happened. They thought it could have come from me, but I didn't test positive to the disease. It was passed on through a cold sore. You have to be in contact – kissed or touched. We didn't have any visitors at hospital. It could have been from anyone.'Eloise's parents held out hope their baby would recover, but when she caught a staph infection in her blood doctors said their was nothing more they could do. Ms Pugh said:'Eloise had a very large legion on her brain, her organs had shut down and they couldn't be sure how she would recover again. She fought right until the end. Five times in one week I was told she wouldn't have made it. Every time she would pull through. She defied the odds. She put up a very good fight.Ms Pugh hopes Eloise's death will help others to be more aware of the herpes virus and how it can effect newborn babies. She said:'Sometimes you don't even know when you've got a cold sore. You never know what's going to happen. It's not just cold sores. Any virus could do this to a baby.' Via lailasblog.
