Diet and exercise not enough, obesity experts say
There is increasing evidenced that many chronically obese people are that way because of the gut flora (e.g.), so if this is a medically treatable condition, what distinguishes it from any other disease? If it is a disease, why not treat it that way instead of shaming people and blaming their size on their lack of impulse control?
Of course, we in America like to blame people for things largely outside of their control, so naturally we won’t stop blaming fatties for being so.
