When an issue, such as obesity, hits the “in your face” pitch it’s at now, I get a bad gut feeling. The obesity epidemic, and the war on obesity news obsession, seems too magnified right now. Last week the word “obesity” managed to dominate headlines again. The news being, it’s worse than we thought!
In June 2013, the American Medical Association (AMA) (against the advice of its scientific committee) classified obesity as a disease. But I am betting the reason for that ruling had a lot more to do about reimbursement schemes than science.
