Weight and metabolic health are “imperfectly correlated.” Though a quarter of obese people are metabolically unhealthy, nearly the same percentage of normal people are also similarly unhealthy.
“The Obesity Paradox” presents compelling evidence that those with excess baggage might be healthier and better able to fight off diseases than normal-weight counterparts. Conversely, the “thin and unfit” waifs have the worst body types for long-term health.

Yep, I'm personally repulsed by fat adults.
I would only share an intimate moment with a fat woman if she was the last option - desert island shipwreck situation etc.
Anything wrong with that? Thought police now is it?
Must I be attracted to bodies with a high fat percentage because 'they're all beautiful inside' ???
Who is the 'Hitler' now as you mentioned earlier?
www.noo.org.uk September 2012 NOO data factsheet Child Obesity and Socioeconomic Status Key points There are significant inequalities in obesity prevalence for children, both girls and boys, and across different age groups. The pattern of socioeconomic inequalities is consistent across a variety of different measures of deprivation using two different data sources: the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) and the Health Survey for England (HSE). There is an almost linear relationship between obesity prevalence i n children and the Index of Multiple Deprivation 20 10 (IMD) score for the area they live in. Child obesity prevalence in the most deprived tenth of local areas is almost double that in the least deprived tenth (Figure 1) .

Oh how I wish I could give you multiple stars and minus/remove stars from other posters. I totally agree with you.
The lack of tolerance and shallowness in our society and in this forum are astounding and shameful.

so you are right - they weren't charged. They were interviewed under caution and released. The police found no evidence of child abuse or they would have been charged.
After all, the police had been contacted by doctors and social workers and now had the evidence provided by the parents under caution.
So where is the evidence of abuse?
