You guys, it’s such a total paranoid conspiracy theory that diet and pharmaceutical companies have ANYTHING to do with the obesity hysteria.
I mean, if that were true, wouldn’t they be bringing in just TONS more money these days?

Also, the Duh Truck has visited again for another shipment. Turns out the moral panic about obesity is actually not improving our general well-being, and may actually be doing a lot more harm than good. OH MY GOD MY MIND IS BLOWN.
(My fave part is the doctor saying “It has long been recognized that ‘fat’ does not necessarily equal unhealthy.” My god, what are we even doing here? Everybody already knows that fat isn’t the same as unhealthy! I wonder when all these trolls I’ve been deleting and commenters on the articles we link to and contributors on news shows and pharma-funded researchers and op-ed writers and our friends and family and the rest of the doctors are going to catch up.)
