  • no
    I think it's a wake up call to put down the fatty and sugary food, pick up a carrot and go on a walk.

  • its freaking lazy ass people that LOVE to eat junk food all day long and too freaking dumb to realize its not good for them and they get fat then they think they are handicap so they need special attention..and now with children being obese is the parents think its okay for them to eat everything and anything they want! then go blame it on the food product that they ate caused it!!

  • @3happykids your logic is a little off. people who are obese have deeper issues sometimes and they use food as a self-medication technique. they are aware what they're doing is bad for them but just like any other addiction it doesn't matter. if parents blame the food on their kids becoming obese and not the fact that they let them eat it, well that's just ignorance.

  • no! its parental and personal responsibility. very few medical issues actually cause a person to be born 'fat'.
