Goofus writes an article about mortuaries in Australia finding their facilities inadequate to deal with large corpses, and emphasizes that:
“Urgent action is required at the highest level to change unhealthy lifestyle habits by improving diet, increasing physical activity and making our environments supportive of these objectives,” wrote the lead researcher, Professor Edward Janus.
Gallant writes an article about hospitals finding their facilities inadequate to deal with fat patients, and emphasizes that:
Every hospital that does surgery should provide at least one theatre and a number of critical care beds equipped for morbidly obese patients and ensure that all beds, trolleys and operating tables are clearly marked with maximum weight loads, it says.
And items such as larger gowns, stockings, blood pressure cuffs and tourniquets should be available….
Dr David Haslam of the National Obesity Forum said: “The obesity problem is not going to go away. Services are not geared up for this at all. It is about time the manufacturers and service providers caught up.”
So. We can solve the problem of some body types receiving inadequate medical and after-death care by:
A) Getting the government involved “at the highest levels” to mandate diet and exercise routines and make teh fatties go away, or
B) Providing the supplies that allow fat people to get proper and dignified health care and funeral plan.
Boys and girls, do you want to be like Goofus or Gallant?
