I : I am a pediatric eating disorder physician and i would like to go on record as saying that obesity is not child abuse. Frankly we understand so little about the biology of obesity that we are not even sure why anyone gets fat, even when it seems"obvious" that people feed their children poorly. We appear to get fat for genetic and environmental reasons. Of interest are recent articles reporting that other (non-human) mammals who live in close proximity to humans, such as domesticated animals and laboratory animals, are getting fatter as well, even when their food intake is tightly controlled, implying that there may be non-food environmental triggers to increasing obesity (infectious agents? Hormonally active pollutants? Food or cosmetic additives?) until the science is better defined, those of us who do not seem to have the genetic propensity to respond to our environment with ever increasing girth might best be served by adopting an attitude of compassion rather than judgmentalism. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
