Well at least the normal, horrendous smell of burning flesh will be replaced by a nation-wide scent of boiled sewage and chicken.
That would be a better smell, trust me.

Obesity is a disease.

I can't catch the tumor, but cancer is a disease. I can take steps to prevent getting fat, just like I can wear sunscreen or choose not to smoke to prevent getting cancer.

Obesity is recognized as a disease by the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and many other major health organizations. If you wanna argue that, "No, those health professionals are wrong," then go and grab a damn bible and preach other ass-backwards **** too.

Now, if you were to say that most people are way too eager to look for excuses as to why they're fat (instead of accepting that it's their choices/lifestyle that caused it), I would totally agree.

Wut, it was only labeled a disease by the American health association against the suggestion of their own medical professionals, and right after it was labeled a disease a new pill that apparently "cures" obesity was approved by the FDA, so it was just someone making money.

Obesity comes from a series of YOUR OWN CHOICES!!!! you do it to yourself it's not like some outside factor that you can't control. Like with the AIDS comment right below this. When you come in contact with AIDS in the form of blood or through unprotected sex you cannot prevent yourself from getting it. Obesity is not like that. You don't just eat one unhealthy thing and suddenly you're shoving donuts down your face continuously until you're obese. It is all your choice and it is the culmination of many choices over time and your lifestyle.

Okay well you still haven't explained how it is a disease. And these are the things that make your grossly overweight to the point that you are obese, there are some other factors like genetics and such that make people have a higher BMI than others, but these factors are controllable with a healthy diet and exercise. Calling obesity a disease, to me, is the most ridiculous cop out ever. It is taking all the blame off the person, who's actions have led them to the point of being obese, and making it sound like it is completely out of their control and there is nothing they can do about it. Obesity is not a disease. Being obese comes from poor choices.

****, dude, if you chose to have unprotected sex with a stranger and caught a disease, it's your fault but you still caught a damn disease. It would have been incredibly easy to avoid it, but you didn't use protection and now your dong hurts. It's not taking the blame off a person calling obesity a disease, they got there all by themselves, they ****** up. Now they have a disease, which is defined as an abnormal condition like anon kindly explained, and they have to make an effort and get better. This argument came from your perception that a disease is not someone's fault. That can be true but it can also be false.

Again, you're stating that it's not a disease on the basis that it's caused by lifestyle. As I've already said, a disease isn't defined by how you get it.

A disease is essentially a physical disorder not caused by direct injury. It can be caused by any number of things. Heart disease, for example, is often caused by lifestyle.

Alright well with obesity it is not a disorder, the fat cells are functioning the way they are suppose to. When you give your body more energy than it needs and do not burn any of it off through exercise it will store it in the form of fat like it is suppose to. So there is no disorder there, the body is doing exactly what it is designed to do. The reason I hate labeling it as a disease s much is because really the body is doing exactly what it is meant to do so there is really no disorder involved in it at all, and also it makes people think that is is not their fault when really it is. It makes people think it is okay to be grossly overweight and in most cases have their lives ended early because they are convinced that it is a disease and there's nothing they can do about it instead of the fact that they're living unhealthy lifestyles. Being healthy is too difficult for most people due to the fact that healthy food is incredibly expensive compared to junk food, and people are lazy and don't like preparing their own meals in a healthy manner so there are tons of people that eat at restaurants which, from my knowledge in working in them, is probably the least healthy and sanitary food you can eat. Also exercise is difficult especially when you get to that point so people just blame it on a disease and say its out of their control when it is 100% in their control. Obesity is a huge problem in America and a lot of other countries but as long as we keep calling it a disease and make people think that there is nothing they can do, it will remain one.

Obviously people in this post don't have a clue what "disease" actually means.   
Disease does not simply mean an infection, like a bacterial or a viral, damage to an organ, or cancer, or anything else along those lines.   
The medical definition of disease is 'a departure from good health caused by a malfunction of the mind or body'. The medical definition for health is 'a state of mental, physical and social wellbeing'.   
So before all you ******* idiots start crying about obesity not being a disease, well yes, technically, IT IS a disease.   
Is it self-inflicted and silly to say that its "genetic"? Yes, its ******* ridiculous. I can't stand fat people who insist being fat isn't their fault.

well another definition of disease is, a disorder of structure or function in a human, animal, or plant, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury. So if we look at it based on this one it is not a disease. Based on this a disease is something in the body not working correctly. When actually obesity is fat cells doing exactly what they are suppose to do when they have a huge overabundance of calories, store them as fat. If we look at different definitions we are going to come up with different answers to whether it is or not. People can go ahead and have their opinions of if it is or not, I am just going to think those opinions are stupid if they think it is a disease. We cause obesity to ourselves. No disorder in structure or function in our body, just how people choose to eat and live. And there are other students out their majoring in sciences so before you get all high and mighty on your medical student status be aware of that.

Actually i can see where we differ in opinion on this. It's not the definition of disease, but the definition of obesity. You're considering obesity to be an overabundance of lipid build up in the body. Whereas I'm considering obesity (and actually this is what I've been taught, maybe it was different for you) to be the affect that this build up of fat has on the human body - whether it is a build up of LDL's on the arterial lining or simply the effect that the excess weight has on the skeleton.
So in my view, obesity classifies as a disease because it is the cause of the disorder of structure/function in a human and is removing the body from a state of health.
And tell me if I'm wrong here, but in your view, on a cellular level, obesity is not a disease because the cells are actually functioning normally, but obesity leads to disease?

somewhat how I view it, I see it as your fat percentage being incredibly high out of healthy limits. Not overall weight because according to doctors scales for my height I should weigh like 160 but I'm 210. It's not that I'm fat, my body fat % is in the healthy limits. I have just lifted weight for a long time in order to compete in sports so I have more muscle weight than most "average people". So while I do agree with parts of how you view it, and thank you for actually having some proof/facts to back up your argument instead of just spouting random BS like everyone else, I do disagree with some parts. Like I said before we could go back and forth finding countless definitions of the same word to prove each other wrong so really it is difficult to say it is one thing or another. Me personally I hate the fact that people call it a disease because it is a way for people to take the blame off themselves when in reality it is all based off of their actions. Which yes in my opinion becoming that large is just the action of cells functioning normally with the condition the body is in by storing excess fat. Again thank you for not being an ignorant dumbass who just says random **** they know nothing about.

Yeah you too man, I'll happily agree to disagree on this. When I commented on this I just assumed that you lot were people having a rant for the sake of hating on fat people. I guess we've just learnt two differing definitions, which I'm going to put down to the fact that we were educated on the matter in different parts of the world. (Assuming you're American with the "majored in.." thing. I'm English.)
Well at least other people can read this little conversation and make their own decision on which side they agree with. Thanks for not being a dick as well, and I apologise if I sounded like I was on my high horse about being into medicine, as that is not what I intended.

There was some fat woman on a show where the subject was pretty 'general' as it was 'overweight'. And some gym teacher asked her 'are you objectively healthy?' and the hoe awnsered with 'now now, you shouldn't ask me that for you wouldn't ask thin people either' ??????? . And some 3000kg ****** in the background started nodding violently to the 'argument'
