    Default Do you think obesity should be labeled as a disease?




    A highly debated topic that I have seen in the health field is whether or not obesity should be considered a disease.

    Some say that it should be classified as a disease since it is a serious medical issue, whereas others think it should be classified as a behavior abnormality.


    What are your thoughts?

    Obviously it varies for everyone, and I'm fairly sure that based on my BMI, I'm classed as overweight, but I'd say my reason for being 'overweight' isn't and can't be classed as a disease.. I just get bored and eat sometimes, I know I don't need the food, but it tastes good, so sue me. I am trying to eat less though, as well as eat more healthy things and less junk food... Being a HGV driver it's easy to get fat anyway.. On the road all the time and if you've ever been to ANY services ever, you'll know they're just filled with fast food places with **** all healthy food options unless you can manage to fill yourself up on the most expensive salad of your life from M&S.

    I think it's a behavioural choice for others, such as myself, or anyone who is only slightly overweight, but when you start to get to a stupid weight, I think we're nearing the territory of a serious medical/behavioural issue.



    It's bittersweet to think about the damage that we do
    'Cause I was going down, but I was doing it with you
    Yeah, everything we broke, and all the trouble that we made
    But I say that I hate you with a smile on my face

    I'm not senDing sublimInal messagEs to rule breakers

    Simple question: Do they have the disease of being overweight in Ethiopia?

    The obesity itself isn't a disease, but it's an eventual (and, should we add, potential) trigger for complications as high cholesterol.

    Our ability of storing fat is inherent from our system and was the quintessential way of staying alive in times when food like honey and whale fat was most precious than diamonds. Two people that have the exact same lifestyle may weight differently, then the determining factor isn't always one's negligence towards themselves.

    Most of our perception of heavy weights as something to be fixed is cultural, unless it really stops them from doing whatever stuff
