Fat is normal?

Filed under:

It's not new news that people around the world are getting fatter, but what is a little new is that as a result being overweight and obese is more socially acceptable today than it was years ago. An overweight person no longer sticks out in society -- a thin person is more likely to be noticed as out of the norm. That's sad! And although I would hope people of all shapes and sizes can be accepted for who they are, it seems the more we accept obesity as 'normal' the less we'll fight it. And since obesity = health risks it's something we should be fighting.
