It’s been a long time since I last posted. Time to get back in the habit!
Today, I’m fascinated by the decision by the American Medical Association to declare obesity a disease.
I’m honestly of two minds about this:
By declaring obesity a disease, I believe that it will receive increased attention and focus from doctors — a much needed change. But I worry that declaring obesity a disease will stigmatize and alienate those most in need of support from the medical community.
What do you think?
