In the US, the House has passed a health care for all bill. Now it faces an uphill battle in the Senate. I have some problems with it, namely there is too much promotion of the idea that thin=health. However, since fat people are particularly vulnerable to the arbitrary loss of health insurance, just due to their weight, I think that making sure everyone has some kind of health care is a good start.
So please let your senators know you want them to pass "Health care for all," but not at the expense of fat people. NAAFA has done some lobbying and an article in Slate challenges the reasoning and numbers of incentive programs that pressure fat people to be thin.
People must understand that fatness is constantly correlated to things it may not cause. A recent interview with Glen "ALL FAT PEOPLE GET CANCER" Weldon, Linda Bacon and Marilyn Wann on BBC news where Linda points out that in the pancreatic cancer studies looked at only 4 that had cancer correlations where the rest (19) did not. Is this how this works? We make decisions based on crappy data, picking and choosing what we want?
Meanwhile HAES is showing more promise to making people healthy without focusing on weight.
