    From the Article:

    "I came down with obesity two years after I got married," 41-year-old Oklahoma City resident Fran Torley said. "I know it was hard for my husband to watch me suffer from this disease. When he caught obesity a year later, he got so depressed, he couldn't do anything but sit on the couch. Some days, we sit and watch television from dawn till dusk, hoping for news of a breakthrough."

    That made me laugh.

    The jokers at the Onion aside, scientists, doctors, even politicians are treating obesity as a disease. Not to mention 'miracle pills' sold in infomercial and email spam. The "obesity epidemic" is bandied about every day, not to meantion all the eating disorder talk.
    Over the last year, the battle of the bulge has esculated into a full scale war.

    yeah, i mean from a health standpoint - the body suffers from obesity just like it would with any other disease. it's definitely serious from a population standpoint (and of course, the individual). the miracle pills make me mad though, and it really just perpetuates lazyness.

    education is the key. there is no reason on earth why someone shouldn't know exactly why they are overweight. the answer is so simple, but too many people just can't except it. meanwhile, they spend all their money and get angry and frustrated watching themselves develop all sorts of health problems.

    True, it's an obvious answer. All they have to do is stop cramming their heads with doritos, haul their big butts off the sofa, and do something, like, ride a bike. Wow, what a concept.
    Alas, it takes something like gas going up to $10/gallon or the NYC transit strike to even make them consider that option. Even then, it's whine and complain. Maybe they deserve what they get.

    I particularly liked this quote: "In May, Hampton coordinated the Obesity Awareness Five-Mile Fun Ride, which led participants on a motor tour of Chicago's waterfront parks, and she orchestrated an obesity-awareness bake sale last month. "

    No kidding. Most people experience a slowing of the metabolism. Mine hit a brick wall, rolled over and died.
