The Obesity Scam
When I saw an article titled "The Obesity Scam," I must admit my first thought was, "Paul Campos." But no! This is a short piece by Alan Caruba. Except for the semi-exaggerated conclusion of the entire "fat is bad' movement (ie, fat people being turned away at restaurants) and simplistic support for why fat is genetic (fat people at family reunions,) he goes after the 300,000 deaths per year figure and a few other popular misconceptions.
