I am not sure whether this should be characterized as disease process or lifestyle choices, but obesity has perhaps the most significant negative impact on the health care system in this country. Obesity should be classified as an epidemic and treated as aggressively as though it is a disease on the order of cancer.

Treatment is needed. If this gets people started,fine.
