Now where did the article state 'what' the child ate? Disgusting Governement funded School Lunches will and do put a huge amount of the weight on
children today, even the 'salads' are loaded with fattening ingredients and dressings.
This has to be a parent who has allowed the system to step in and control her which happens everyday. She is probably poor and therefore feels
powerless against the system. The stress of having them in your life can cause stress eating. She most likely has no support system nor money for a
This is something which is dangerous and reminds me of the Thunderdome society, it is easy to judge and cheer when you think it does not affect you
personally, but you just never know.
One more thing to ponder is that when this happens,is allowed to happen, how long before we see any child who is not up to their normal weight also
taken away and the parent accused of neglect and slandered before all the facts are presented.
How many people do you know that as a child were called names just as painful as Obese or fat, names like toothpick, stickfigure, skin and bones,
underwieght and the rest?
If they can take a child for their weight it works both ways.
I almost feel like starting a new thread about how the msm and society has taken being overweight to towering heights above anything which imo is
unhealthy on so many levels. I recall as a young woman how when I was a size 4 , in those days it would be equal to about a size 1 now, that I was
told I was fat. Body image is so important to self esteme and feeling good about oneself in general. But when there is negative input from the
begining like this young child is living through, experiencing, his chances of ever having a normal outlook is almost nill at this point.
I suppose the best that society and the judges of this childs life can hope for is for him to become obsessive about being fat and masking all of the
cruel terms with words like "helthier, live longer, diabetes, chronic pain and the rest.
But really it can go both ways and I would venture to bet that once everyone becomes skeletal in stature, when being fat is something of the past and
a rareity the focus will then turn to the unhealthy aspects of being too thin. It is always something, anything to keep people from loving themselves.
There are simple procedures which can go in to the brain and with a little snip and clip, leave the individual without the fat gene, it could
completly irradicate all obesity from the genetic level but then the big pharma and the diet aids would go broke over night.
As if there are not more important issues in the world today, making issue with childrens weight by the same industries that are helping to make them
fat in the first place is a scam job, a red herring and a diversion from the things that really matter.
Get more healthy food to the markets and fast food operations, to the schools and snack isles in the grocery stores. And not just healthy but
For those of you who find obesity offensive and disgusting, consider the fact that many people find morbidly thin just as offensive and ugly. Yes
ugly, unattractive, unhealthy, neglectful, unsightly.
I would rather have a child who is slightly over weight than one who is frightningly underweight. If you have ever watched how fast a child can lose
weight when they get sick, you know how risky it is to encourage them to have negative habits of being too skinny especially with all of the virus
conspiracy going on in the world today.

Severely underweight individuals may have poor physical stamina and a weak immune system, leaving them open to infection. According to Robert E. Black
of the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, "Underweight status ... and micronutrient deficiencies also cause decreases in immune and non-immune
host defenses, and should be classified as underlying causes of death if followed by infectious diseases that are the terminal associated causes."
People who are malnutrative underweight raise special concerns, as not only gross caloric intake may be inadequate, but also intake and absorption of
other vital nutrients, especially essential amino acids and micro nutrients such as vitamins and minerals.
In women, being grossly underweight can result in amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), infertility and possible complications during pregnancy. It
can also cause anemia and hair loss.
Underweight is an established risk factor for osteoporosis, even for young people. This is a particular insidious consequence, because the affected
persons do not notice the danger. After the occurrence of first spontaneous fractures the damage is often already irreversible.
Being underweight causes increased mortality at rates comparable to that seen in morbidly obese people.
