Interesting article about how the American Medical Association declared Obesity a disease last year, however that is backfiring on actually helping obesity in the US.

I find this part of the article rather interesting;

"The nation’s largest physician organization said the new classification would help turn more medical attention toward obesity, as well as increase reimbursement for obesity-related drugs, surgery, and counseling."

The attention of medicine in general is no longer to cure anything, it is in this case to keep us fat and happy. Treat obesity with drugs and surgery rather than prevent it, because obviously if you prevent obesity the medical industry loses millions if not billions of dollars in drugs and surgeries.
