Literally every nuclear plant in construction throughout the entire world is way overbudget, even the ones in China. They also take decades to complete a buildout, which no private bank is willing to fund. So they're entirely reliant on government funding. Which itself may not be a bad thing, but the final cost of building and then later decommissioning the plant (which is also extremely expensive and difficult) is just way too high.

Did you even bother to read the article? The woman's eating habits and calorie intake were carefully measured and she gained weight despite not changing anything. I've lost 35 lbs with exercise, but despite spending almost 100 minutes and 1100 calories a day, I still can't get rid of the last 5-10 lbs of flab. It doesn't matter how little I eat.
