Fact is she says she is healthy, and plenty of people can even be morbidly obese and be healthy.
Hope you aren't a doctor, as somebody that cannot walk more than a few feet is definitely unhealthy.
Skinny doesn't mean healthy.
Being skinny doesn't mean someone is healthy, but being fat puts stress on all your body's organs, and some point one will fail (probably the heart
as it takes the most stress). It's a poor argument to say that not all skinny people are healthy, to make oneself feel better about their obesity.
Obesity is unhealthy full stop.
I have an uncle who claims he is healthy because he is thin. Yet he drinks,smokes a lot, eats tons of fast food and gets four hours of sleep a
night. His lifestyle could off him before a lot of heavy people.
Possibly, and I'd call him as much of an idiot as obese people.
But since his devices are not as apparent, he doesn't have to face the same scrutiny and admonishments that someone who has an obvious eating
This fatty is in the newspapers because she wants to be there. Stop pretending it's someone else's fault. If your uncle wants to broadcast his
unhealthy lifestyle, I might also leaving comments there as well criticising it.
Sad that someone with anorexia is to be pitied, but someone with an eating disorder is a menace to society.
Ah well, someone with anorexia isn't contributing to global warming by all of the extra CO2 produced during food production, packaging etc, that the
fatties cause. Anorexia doesn't have to be pitied, it just has to be treated. It's easier to put weight on when the mental health issues are
sorted, but to get fatties to lose weight is almost near imposssible because of the shear "enormous" effort needed (no pun intended).
Don't forget that fatties also increase the mass of planes, cars, trains, buses etc, and that adds to the strain on society and CO2 emissions.
I agree both anorexics and fatties are both a strain on the health system, but there are more fatties than anorexics. Simple maths!
