So about fat acceptance
Obesity is more than a health concern; it is the most serious health problem our nation faces, period. It contributes to heart disease, the #1 cause of death in America. It significantly reduces the individual's quality of life and interferes with a person's basic functionality. It drains taxpayer dollars and hurts the economy. It burdens families at the interpersonal level. Tobacco, while harmful, pales in comparison to the damage potential of obesity. However, it is socially acceptable to tell a person to quit smoking because it'll kill them, yet it is considered rude or bullying to suggest the equivalent about weight loss. How much longer is society going to accept this?
