Fat Attack: Leading UK Doctor Wants Gastric Surgery For Fat Children
Fat Attack: Leading UK Doctor Wants Gastric Surgery For Fat Children

The fact that a grown man uses a word fat on the same line as children should say a lot about his persona.

The daily mail reports- Dr David Haslam, head of the National Obesity Forum, said that not enough young people are offered surgery because NICE commissioning guidelines advise against it.
He said the
treatment, which is normally reserved for over 16s, should not be seen as a quick fix because it can have a long term impact on health and increase life expectancy by decades.

Dr Haslam made the remarks in response to suggestions that fizzy drinks should be heavily taxed and the numbers of fast food takeaways limited.

The Academy of Royal Medical Colleges - which represents 220,000 doctors - warned that tougher measures are needed to tackle Britain’s obesity crisis.

At present nearly two thirds of adults and one in three children are too fat, according to NHS data.
But Dr Haslam said the proposed measures to tackle the obesity epidemic were not enough.

While we agree with the doctor’s view that more should be done to tackle the problem of child obesity but we have to disagree with his opinion of offering gastric surgery to young children, it’s too risqué we’ve heard a cases like the one of a woman who over ate and her stomached couldn’t take no more and she choked from pop corn and died.

Knowing kids they will probably over eat too, I mean parents can’t control their meal intakes what guarantee does anyone have that they will be able to make sure that kids don’t over eat and risk dying.  I’ll take fat children over dead children any given day.
