Fat People Don’t Deserve Health Insurance


This type of comment keeps getting thrown around in the news. Its as if the overweight culture has chosen to become overweight and become a finical burden on the healthcare system.
Yet with a country that is almost 65 percent overweight, that would be a ton of people to throw blame at.
I understand that the insurance companies are there to make money and nothing more but this is a disease and not a choice. For instance, who would make a choice of having Diabetes, Cancer or Heart Disease. All which eventually can lead to an early death.
Then consider the environment of all the unhealthy foods like cookies and candy available right under you pharmacy pickup counter.
How can we stand a chance.
The true way to bring down heath costs is to address this disease from every angle including education and treatment. It is ironic that you can get into almost every chemical dependency clinic for a reduced rate but never one for obesity. After all isn’t sugar a additive substance that you grow dependent on?
So why blame the wrong group of people that could use it just as much as everyone else.
I never though I would see such bigotry return these days but it seems that it is rearing it’s ugly head in many ways.
