Obesity and drugs

San Luis ObispoJune 28, 2013 

Some people are wondering why the American Medical Association recently declared that obesity is a disease. The first thing that came to my mind was that this would allow some of their doctors to prescribe even more drugs. The AMA is in bed with the pharmaceutical industry, and it ain’t pretty.

I would like some doctor or peddler of pharmaceuticals in the area to challenge me on this. Please — bring it on.
