Is letting your child become obese child abuse?

A: I''m not a doctor, just stating my general thoughts, and be sure to watch the video. I don''t think it''s a form of direct abuse always, yet it is a form of abuse when it gets to a certain extent of weight gain for a child, and when your child is unhealthy as a direct result of the parent. It''s important to realize, it''s your child who eats, not you as the parent, and you can do your best to stop them from overeating, yet at times it''s hard for the child, and taking away food from someone who eats, might have the reverse affect. Sometimes it''s very hard to get someone who likes to eat to stop eating, and punishing someone for overeating is not healthy for the child either. A child who eats too much, is like trying to get an alcoholic to stop drinking, someone who loves to consume food,...

Poll: what is worse being Anorexic or being Obese?

A: both are the same. THEY SUCK IF YOU ARE ONE OF THEM!!!!! being anoriexic because you would have bad teeth and you know what they say if your fat your allso jolly!!!!!!! Obese is absolutely worse. thats just me though... I assume that when you say "anorexic" you mean having anorexia nervosa. The term anorexic in and of itself just means not eating. If you had a stomach flu for a few days and were too sick to your stomach to eat, a doc may say you are anorexic but that does not mean you have the eating disorder. Likewise, you can be obese (meets criteria of over 30% BMI) without being perceived as having morbid obesity. Neither anorexia nervosa or morbid obesity are healthy conditions. The morbidity for both is significant though I...

Should Obese Older Adults in Health Care Communities Be Encouraged to Lose Weight?

A: The obesity epidemic challenges health care professionals who care for older adults. Our next great challenge in working with the nutritional needs of older adults in health care communities will be one that we have not worried about in many years: obesity. In the U.S., the prevalence of obesity in the general adult population is now at 67% (1); among adults over the age of 75 this rate was 26% for men and 27% for women in 2007-8. This may not sound alarming until you realize that this is an increase of 100% and 42% respectively since 1988-1994 (2). It is clear that in the coming years we`ll see more obese residents enter health care facilities for both short-term rehabilitation and long-term stays.
