The problem with society as a whole. Constantly we are told through media that thin is healthy and fat is unhealthy. Doctors equate weight with health. The weight loss industry is winning. Starting in the 90's when they changed the BMI classifications to the barrage of ads where they equivocate losing weight with health. "I feel healthy". "Lose weight and gain health. ". The ACTUAL facts are that there is not a direct relation to weight and health nor weight and mortality. There is no correlation to weight and heart disease or weight and cancer. These are unproven misnomers that have permeated into the land of facts. A very overlooked fact is that there are more unhealthy "thin" people than unhealthy "fat" people. If an overweight person goes to their doctor for an ailment, they are more often than not told to lose weight without a proper diagnosis. Thin people are assumed healthy and will receive better diagnoses and treatment because of that assumption. Do not judge a book by its cover and do not diagnose health by a persons weight.
