MOSCOW, December 27 (Itar-Tass) — Gennady Onischenko, head of Rospotrebnadzor (Consumer Rights Watchdog), has recommended that Russian citizens should not go far away during the forthcoming New Year holidays which Onischenko predicted to be “a decade of a nightmare" because of the expected excessive food consumption and alcohol abuse, Onischenko told a press conference on Thursday.
"We are on the threshold of "a decade of this nightmare" when the majority of our citizens will be left to their own devices," Onischenko warned. "One can hardly find a worse enemy to our citizen than the citizen himself. In the best case it will be a senseless watching TV screens, total spiritual omnivorous consumption of the surrogates coming from the TV screens, where murder scenes are the most ”humane” thing to see,” Onischenko stressed.
Apart from being glued to TV screens the Russian people face the sin of gluttony and alcohol abuse, the head sanitary doctor warned. As for vacationers who planning to go far away from home, the head sanitary doctor has recommended them not to abruptly change climatic conditions. "It is not only young, but people of advanced age and people with small children who are going away," Onishchenko said. He warned against abrupt changes in air temperatures, which is bad for one's health, the head sanitary doctor noted. "We have the Elk Island, the Sokolniki partk, and besides we have the Russian North for people with a more esthetic taste to enjoy. There is no point spending one's own money to undergo a questionable drill which might negatively tell on one's immune system, Onischenko warned.
