I was listening to a very bad french tv show (En attendant Ben Laden (translated to "Waiting for Ben Laden") which is supposed to be a comedy show but well it faills. Anyway, they asked a question to the public that made me think... Is being fat a crime? My answer is no. It is not a crime, it is more like a disease. It's something that should be prevented, for which we should educate the population to try to remove but it is not something that is evil or even antisocial.
Sure I think there should be a taxe on high fat, low nutrition value food (like chips and most fast food) and that we should do everything in our power to insure that people realise that obesity is dangerous for their health. This danger is a global epidemic right now and will only get worse as time pass. I have a friend who's kid will probably morbidly obeses in a few years, they are already heavier then I am and about a foot smaller. They are fat at age 16 and 14 respectively that is scary and the worse part is that everywhere I look the kids seems to follow this thread (wich isn't better then the skinny thread).
