nobody knows

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

"Nobody can prove that fat actually causes all of the health issues that it gets blamed for.  Nobody who says that fat is unhealthy can explain the 51% of overweight adults and 30% of obese adults who are metabolically healthy (based on studies from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York).  Nobody can prove why we’re getting fatter (there’s even argument as to whether or not we are).  Nobody knows for sure why obese people who live in cultures that don’t stigmatize them do not show negative health outcomes that those in stigmatizing societies do. Nobody knows for sure why all of the health problems that are correlated with being fat are also correlated with being under constant stress.  Nobody knows for sure the long term health effects of living in a society that constantly stigmatizes you and tells you that you can’t possible be healthy."
