This just pisses me off

This fat **** through his own laziness and gluttony develops liver cancer and then sues his DR as the Doc didnt recommend he go to a weight loss clinic, WTF!!!!!!!

If your morbidly obese and you need someone to tell you you should lose weight in my opinion you got bigger issues to worry about. maybe people should warn him not to step in front of moving vehicles as he obviously lacks any common sense.

I dont have anything against large people and have genuine sympathy for overweight people who because of genes or diseases cant lose weight but this just takes the piss.

He says the DR was negligent, maybe taxpayers should sue him, his negligence in not eating healthily and not excercising has cost $1000s and taken up hospital beds, DRs time as well as resources.

You should not be so emotionally invested in such a topic unless it hits home for a reason. Cases like this happen everyday from skinny/fat/regular people who are always out to try and make bank anyway/anyhow and suing has become an easy way of doing just that.

Wow...sadly this doesn't surprise me.

It seems there are more and more frivolous lawsuits every year. It is sad that stupidity and lack of personal accountability are rewarded. It seems people want to blame someone else for everything and then sue when it goes south.

Law suits like this should be tossed and the person responsible for the fees for wasting everyones time!

At what point mentally does one have to be to blame their doctor for their obesity and not their own personal habits!

It's a message board and they are sharing it with others to discuss.

Just because it happens "everyday" as you put it doesn't mean it isn't happening and we can't discuss it. This is part of what is WRONG with society, stupid waste of time law suits like this! Money hungry people who can't seem to grasp personal responsibility.

Probably true with depressed people as well, they need to be told that they are depressed. My sister takes 9 medications. Like seriously?? 9?? I'm surprised your still alive to even speak about it. And it makes me wonder why her husband left in the first place and why her daughter is so messed up.

9 medications??

And these are heavy medications.

Like Flexirel, Vicoden, lorset.

Are you kidding me?

That's just too much in my opinion.

I take Flexril and it acts like benedryl. Since on them. I have taken 2 and I have 64. Because I wouldn't be able to even function in a day, even if I have taken one. It has to be a day where I am doing nothing. It says to take 3 day. 1 will immobilize you. 3, I don't even want to know.

But 9 mix and matches..

How you still walking is my question?

That's just way too many.

The day someone won a lawsuit for being burned by "hot" coffee, I knew the justice system was... askew.
We need to start holding people accountable for stupidity, and I include a lack of common sense as a form of stupidity in that statement.

Ever take a look at all the warning labels/signs that exist in this world? They exist because at some time someone was a moron, and an equally stupid Judge granted said moron a victory in court.



I say we toss these sorts of lawsuits, remove the needless warning labels, and let Darwinism regain control of our failing society.

Im not emotionally invested just pissed off,

This guy represents so many things to me, a lack of personal responsibility, laziness, selfishness, greed.

Its not this case itself its the whole idea of him being able to get away with it.
If it had of been someone suing for a spilt hot coffee or breaking a leg while trying to rob someones home I would have posted that just as quickly

Not jealous at all.

You obviously didnt read the article as the dude wont be enjoying his money due to the fact hes practically wheelchair bound, morbidly obese and most likely gonna be dead within a year.

I doubt very much any woman who would date a 50+ year old morbidly obese, terminally ill cancer patient would be my type of girl so hes more than welcome to them

Now you know what I go through.


And everyone expects you to find comfort because it's not their fault.

Sorry, but it is their fault.

What I want to know is, how the argument that Emmanuel Varipatis' "negligence" in not suggesting Mr. Almario an alternative like, say, oh I don't know changing his diet sooner even awarded him a single dime.

Idiocy pays I guess.

Going to dip my hands into some hot grease and sue Crisco, brb.

Please do not read this thread while sleeping or bathing.

Sometimes it takes a ridiculous lawsuit like this to "fix" the system.
I know that in the US, many doctors are very ignorant when it comes to nutrition and diet. Mostly a "treat the symptoms" mentality. One gets the feeling Drs. don't really want to cure anyone, just make them linger as long as possible.

I am not blaming the doctor.... but...
Perhaps the doctor didn't want him to get healthy and loose weight, healthy people are bad for business.

It's time the state sued the parents of stupid people for bringing such morons into the world and the state should also sue the lawyers who bring stupid actions.

Even if they have a 'genetic pre-disposition" they can still achieve a healthy body structure. They just need to work a little harder. There is no reason to get that large. There has to be a serious mental issue underlying that condition. Who in their right mind would want to be that large?

My previous statement has led me to the wonderment that maybe people that are more than 50lbs over weight should be seen to by a mental health worker to try to ascertain the reason why they don't try to maintain their health. They are a danger- not only to themselves, but to any children they might bring into the world.

They should be counselled and made to attend a logical fitness regime. It doesn't have to mean 300 jumping jacks, 200 squats, and a few laps around a ring. There are many ways. Certain yoga practices create heat and exacerbate blood flow (thus creating caloric burn).

Who- once they've begun- can deny the joy of controlling your body and feeling the wonderous strength we all possess? Don't you yearn for it? I know your bones and muscles do. Learn to listen. Your body WILL learn to hunger for it. Your bones, sinew and muscle are connected, but are different being than your mental self. You will learn to meld them into the one they yearn to be. They may complain at first because your mental self has had so much control for so long. Think of that torpid mental self as a contrary 3 year old who has always gotten what they wanted by whining. Once that physical part of you learns the freedom of wind and strength and work- it WILL need it. And you will want it.

I can say these things. If I stop eating right (which equates to stopping eating regularly) I gain weight. I can't eat when I'm depressed so my metabolism slows down. When I do eat, I do not eat junk. I never eat fast food (haven't for some years), I try to eat organic, but I usually eat something rich - rich comfort food like roast pork and rice or ..whatever. When you don't eat regularly, your body stores the energy you do put into it for a rainy day, so to speak.

I am probably "clinically depressed" as well. I have some serious issues. I also know that as soon as I decide to step out of the house, any weight I have gained through depressive lethargy starts dissipating as soon as I get even one thirty minute walk in a day. I will not take medication for this depression I know I'd be diagnosed with; I take responsibility for myself, and just work through it.

It would be so easy to sit back, let the lethargy take over, and blame the depression for whatever weight I gain. So easy. In this world we have today, it'd be acceptable too. That's disgusting. It's the same with "ADD/ADHD" people. Oh my- let's not use their energy - let's kill it. Let us make them think there is some thing wrong and that they do not have a responsibility to learn about themselves enough to control themselves.

You know what I did instead this time (yeah it comes and goes)? I bought some rollerskates (quads) for when it gets warm. I'm going to teach my newly adopted dog-friend to run with me while I'm on skates. Actually- just adopting a friend and training them properly can be a huge help in relieving your torpor.

^ I know about being 'different.' I was told I was different from as young as I can remember. If I were born today, I'd have been drugged. Good luck for me, I blossomed before this drug craze became rampant.

Point is- just DO SOMETHING. I understand the lethargy. I understand the torpid, senselessness of it all. The only thing that will fix that is using yourself. You know what happens after I force myself from the torpid state and do my yoga or hike with my puppy-friends?

I begin singing to myself. I sing every thing. Ooooohhh Jennifer clean those dishes you dirty bastard...oooohhh hey puppy people I see you're full of lovies....HEY SHOES (metal voice) WTF ARE YOU DOING TRIPPING ME"

Yeah I'm crazy.

But you know what? It's ok.

My initial reaction on reading the headline was.....utter scumbag.

However on further reading it is clear there is as usual more going on here than there initially appears. As a result my opinion of him has tempered a little.

According to the link this bloke was suing because he's dying of liver cancer, but his doctor never referred him to a liver cancer specialist, nor did he warn him that obesity would adversely affect liver disease which he had had for years. The non-referral to a weight loss clinic is secondary.

So no matter what you think of this guy (and I think he's an utter [snip]), the doctor was negligent in the sense that he never referred a patient with liver disease to a specialist.
