    what really pisses me off about the subject is, at the age of 16 i got sent to a place to recover from an addiction, half the staff there where morbidly obese, wtf, how can someone teach about recovering from your addictions when you yourself are addicted to the number one drug, food. it psycholigicaly makes you feel good when you eat. u eat when ur depressed, or angry, its a drug, a mood depresser, lol

    Very true my friend


    I was talking with my brother just yesterday the problem lies in the fact that such a thing would be impossible to enforce for example why should I as an individual pay to drink a soda or eat a cookie in the required amount of cals to live. A flat tax on alcohol and tabbacco works because those things are not necessary to live. What if I exercise for three hours a day and have well and truly earnt that cookie icon_neutral.gif

    I think the problem lies with acceptance....if we provide carts for fat people to roll themselves around Walmart, two airline seats/seat belt expanders, disability benefits, all you can eat buffets and plus size clothing we simply enable

    It's a problem which compounds itself, people will think it's irresponsible, dangerous and just plain a bad life for themselves unless a third of the world are doing such a thing and there's no majority to set a good example

    People would soon take personal responsibility if they started to get to a point where they couldn't wear clothes, travel, shop, or work

    Please don't misunderstand what I'm about to say, because I'm not passing judgement on anyone.

    It is a very long stretch to characterize food as a drug, with the possible exception of food items containing high concentrations of the compound caffeine, which is in fact a drug.

    Drugs are pharmaceuticals. Food is not a pharmaceutical. Comparing a stalk of celery or a chocolate bar to something like Ecstasy or Crystal Meth is intentionally misleading at best, and is a loaded statement generally put forth by advocates of legalizing drugs (I have no stand on the issue with the two exceptions of Crystal Meth and Cocaine, which I have lost too many friends to).

    That being said, people can have an addiction to eating, and emotion eating is not at all uncommon. There are many support groups to support these disorders.

    But please, for the sake of simply honesty, don't suggest that food is a pharmaceutical. It's just silly. If you're pro-legalization of drugs, that's fine, simply make the statement and go on. But there really is a chasm of difference between what is classed as a drug and what is classed as food.

    No, food is NOT the #1 killer in America. It is heart disease which is the #1 Killer according to the CDC.
