Where were the cons when this ruling came down? Oh, the BK line getting that double cheesy greasy burger! lol

 

AMA creates controversy

Orlando, Fla. - When the American Medical Association this past week declared obesity a disease - a move that instantly labeled one-third of Americans as sick - it launched a controversy not seen since alcoholism received the disease designation.

 

Hailed by some obesity experts as a long-overdue victory, the news from the nation's largest and most respected medical group was denounced by others who say the move fuels the stigma against obese Americans.

 

Fat activists promptly started the IAmNotADisease hashtag on Twitter, and a petition demanding that the AMA reverse its position, which had nearly 1,200 signatures by Friday.

 

Calling obesity a disease will open doors to better treatment and better reimbursements, said Dr. Steve Smith, president-elect of The Obesity Society, which has referred to obesity as a disease since 2008.

 

"It adds legitimacy to the problem, will help raise public awareness and will get doctors engaged in treating the condition," said Smith, also scientific director for the Florida Hospital-Sanford Burnham Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes, in Orlando.

 

The AMA's decision "is a defining moment," said Joe Nadglowski, president of the Obesity Action Coalition, a national nonprofit based in Tampa, Fla., that helps those struggling with obesity. "It puts obesity on the same path as treatments for addictions to alcohol or tobacco, and mental health problems, such as depression."

 

A few decades ago, those conditions were also perceived as behavioral problems, said Nadglowski. "Once we realized they involved a disease process, that drove better coverage, better treatment, and real change."

 

In making the call, the AMA aims to reduce the incidence of obesity-related diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, said AMA board member Dr. Patrice Harris in a statement accompanying the announcement.

More than 35 percent of Americans are currently obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Wow...you liberals get in every thing and screw it up don't you? Maybe it's just the progressives. Anyway, I hear it now...it's not my fault I'm fat! It's a disease!

Most people I see using Foodstamp cards in the Supermarket line are Fat Slobs..... In the interest of their health, we should cut their benefit by 80%.

Does that mean that some like you are mentally deficient, that you all should be euthanized, to prevent your further suffering, I'm starting to get your point, and I think I like it.

You dip shiit! The AMA is a decidedly conservative front group for doctors who continue to pillage and plunder people for trillions of $$.

 

Of course they like this. It will put trillions more $$ in their pockets!

 

Its your mind that is deseased! :glare:

 

I've never been in a Walmart. Beat that.

When I was young, I had a love affair with the Big Mac. Then, later on, I became allergic to the "secret sauce".!

 

Its no wonder they call it secret sauce; they need to keep the ingredients a secret!

They may be fat, because they are forced to buy cheap carbs, like potatoes and white rice, and 70% ground beef and noodles like Top ramen. Those carbs turn directly to fat!

 

But Americans are 35% obese, all accross the board!

Whenever I see the fat mother and her three shockingly fat children at the local B.K. lounge, the first thing that comes to my mind is "do you really want to feed a cholesterol burger to a six or seven year old child that probably tips the scale at well over 150 lbs?" Isn't this a form of child abuse? This woman is setting her children up for heart disease before they are fifteen.

 

I go to Burger King or some other fast food joint maybe once or twice a month. The last three times I went to the B.K. this woman and her children were there.

 

Disability is not meant for people who eat themselves into oblivion. Weight can be lost. I hear the "miracle stories" of weight loss every day. To me, eating until you are a disgusting lump of flesh is NOT A DISABILITY!

 

Getting hit by a drunk driver and being paralyzed from the neck down is a disability. Chronic heart disease is a disability.

 

An inability to control your eating habits is not a disability.

I'm in good shape....can pay my own grocery bill. I don't need the government to manage my life....I guess I'd make a lousy Democrat.

Anyone who eats at Burger King or McDonald's regularily and doesn't realize the food is making them fat after the 1st 50 lbs of lard hanging from their gut deserves to wallow in their own stupidity.

 

People who are morbidly obsese are just lazy fucks, who don't diet or exercise. and shovel junk food into their gullet every day. It's not Burger King's fault they have no self control - anymore than it's a 'hot woman's fault if a rapist chooses to violate her.

 

What a sad irresponsible mindset we have in this country today.

 

BTW, 1600 calories is nothing. Some profession bodybuilders eat as much as 9,000 calories every day when they're trying to gain mass, and they aren't fat by any means.

 

And that's a really high estimate to begin with. A regular whopper and a small fries is about 900 calories, not 1600

So you're response is the Government doesn't provide enough money in Foodstamp benefits, for these people to eat a proper ballanced Diet?

 

Is there any point where personal responsibility appears on the radar screen?

They're fat because they choose to sit on their ass, pig out on junk food, and not exercise. Plain and simple.

85% of the food in grocery stores is not good for you, one way or another.

We eat way too many carbs, and not enough lean protein and whole grains & veggies.

You can work out in a gym all you want, but you wont lose that excess fat without changing your diet.

 

And food stamps does not even begin to pay for a good, healthy diet. Protein is expensive, and the only safe vegetables and fruit to eat is organic, without all the pesticides and chemicals in it, and that costs more too.

 

Obesity has exploded ever since the farcical Food Labeling Act, and the heavy use of high fructose corn syrup, and aspartame and other dangerous sweeteners. BIG FOOD is poisoning us, and the foods are over processed to the nth degree.

 

Its no wonder we have an explosion of diabetes and cancer in this country! And I wont even touch GMO foods, that's a whole other story! Fck Monsanto!
