It is interesting that there was an Epcot area devoted to one of First Lady Michelle Obama’s pet projects–fighting childhood obesity. Perhaps not as interesting that it was perceived as too hard on overweight people, and made the wrong people the bad guys.

I think the whole system of of what normal/overweight is perhaps culturally blind, and perhaps could be adjusted. But I suppose that being concerned about medical monitoring of conditions suchas blood sugars, and weight does have a role in prolonging the life expectancy, and elevating quality of life experiences possible in the later years versus some other possibilities of chronic conditions.
