"This generation of American children is the first in 200 years who have shorter life expectancies than their parents, and the major cause is obesity." - Kathleen Sebelius, US Secretary of Health and Human Services
Being overweight or obese does not make someone less of a person.They are still worthwhile and they do matter. Unless someone has a medical condition beyond their control, other than food addiction, it is my belief that they have the ability to prevent and reverse obesity.
