I know, politically incorrect to call something what it is, oh well.
I have two opinions about this: 1) adults that choose to be unhealthy (whether it be overweight, chain smoking, whatever) only bother me in the sense of the affect they have on the healthcare system and healthcare costs. I think your healthcare costs should be in direct relation to your overall health in life. If you choose to eat 12 Big Mac’s a day I should not have to pay for your heart medication. 2) Seeing our society fill with overweight (fat) children is utterly disgusting because they (depending on age) don’t understand the value of proper health because their parents are sabotaging their lives. Parents that allow their children to live at McDonalds or in the junk food cabinet are abusing their children, period.
Don’t talk to my wife about this subject, she is FAR more passionate about this then I am.
