Fat Health – Don’t Believe the Hype

27 Feb

Doctors can be such ***holes.  Not all, but many are insensitive and have bad bedside manners.  They don’t know how to talk to fat people because they aren’t fat, they have no perspective, and they compromise their scruples because of money the diet industry pumps into their pockets. The only thing worse than the diet industry is the insurance industry.  Many doctors are puppets of these two industries.  What happened to the oaths doctors took  to make people healthier?  Instead, doctors work to prop up corporate powers that make it more difficult to be happy and healthy.

There aren’t enough doctors out there who care for the health of their patients.  Doctors push lapbands for people who don’t even need it.  As reported by Big Fat Blog, “the government just lowered the approved BMI for people in the 35-40 bmi range and for anyone with a 30-35 bmi and a weight-correlated condition or risk factor.”

It’s hard to know what’s accurate, but there are some great resources out there, like Fat Health.  Loads of good posts and links to help you become fully informed on how to stay healthy.

Seek out good information.  Don’t believe the hype.
