I said it would happen, and sure enough here it is. I knew that tackling childhood obesity is far from being a politically safe effort. My kid fat? You have got to be kidding, he is only 250, it's baby fat he will grow out of it.
And here's this author of "The obesity myth", arguing that childhood obesity is not a problem. Never mind the millions of people who get diabetes later in life because their insulin systems break down.
Granted, obesity and other eating disorders are complex and defy easy fixes. Granted, it is possible to take the wrong approach to these issues which often have a very complex psychology. But to argue that child obesity is a non-issue? Â Look at any primitive tribe in the forests of New Guinea. Look at their 13 year olds. I guarantee it, none of them are going to be 250 lbs. It's a function of our culture and our complex social and psychological issues. It's not biology. If it were biology, you would find 250 lb. 13 year olds in the New Guinea rain forest, and there are none.
