Jon, I rarely if ever disagree with you, but this is one time i really do. First off i'm not certan we can compare anorexia and obesity, anorexia is very clearly a disease whereas obesity might be considered a sympton of disease rather than the disease itself. I'm sure there is some disagreement on this, but it's clear in many cases, somebody becomes obese due to other medical conditions. Even if somebody does not have a medical condition that causes obesity and is just obese for lifestyle reasons, i think it's fair to say in most cases, when somebody dies it's not from being fat, but from the effects of eating a high fat/high sodium diet or not exercising.If she thinks Anorexia isn't a problem, she's mistaken. It's still killing more people in the US than it supposed opposite, but one life and one impressionable mind is one life and one impressionable mind.
I also don't think she said anorexia is not a problem, but realistically there are more fat people than people with anorexia.
