A leading health academic has called for fat people to be 'shamed and beat upon socially' in order to halt the obesity crisis. In a controversial article, Daniel Callahan, the 82-year-old president emeritus of The Hastings Center a New York think-tank specializing in health policy ethics, calls for increased stigmatization of obese people to try spur weight-loss across America. The senior research scholar says fat people should be treated like smokers who have become increasingly demonized in recent years and thus 'nudged' by negative attitudes of those around them into giving up the unhealthy habit. Experts in eating disorders and obesity.Predictably Callahan is receiving harsh criticism from liberals in his field. We here at LR humbly agree with the respected nutritionist. But let's hope Callahan's suggestion to castigate fattys in society would include EVERYBODY including Food Stamp/EBT abusers on the government dole?
