Default Physicians should no longer recommend weight lose

lol...https://www.yahoo.com/gma/research-s...-wellness.html

“Recommending different treatments for patients with the same condition based on their weight is unethical and a form of malpractice,” Chrisler said. “Research has shown that doctors repeatedly advise weight loss for fat patients while recommending CAT scans, blood work or physical therapy for other, average weight patients.”

If a doctor tells a patient to lose weight its no longer acceptable. How many billions of dollars are spent due to overweight individuals? Simply having a healthy diet could cut out so many medical issues yet society is now expected to accept overweight people and boost their self esteem.

Nothing but mainstream media at it again...trying to normalize something that is not healthy. Doctors now have to be politically correct and not give obese patients sound medical advise because it may hurt their feelings.
