Obesity: How We Got Here

“"May???" That's like saying, that in certain car accidents, you have a better chance of surviving if you don't wear your seat belt!!!! I think the author does an excellent job of explaining why obesity and health seldom co-exist "e.g. the obese don't exercise, a mitigating factor for any health complications that may be an underlying factor."”

“Unfortunately, the author uses overbroad generalities about obese people. It is true that exercise is good for people in general. Both normal weight people and obese people are at higher risk if they don't exercise. The research shows that approximately one third of obese people are very healthy. The obese INCREASE their risk of illness when they lose weight and then regain it, even when they lose it again.”
