The move by the American Medical Association board means that one-third of the U.S. adult population can now officially be diagnosed and treated with a flood of new drugs and vaccines which have been years in the making.

Everything is calculated and carefully controlled when it comes to the pharmaceutically industry and their sales pimps. That includes national attention to a medical policy makeover that now effectively defines 78 million American adults and 12 million children as having a medical condition requiring treatment.

In the end, members of the AMA's House of Delegates rejected cautionary advice from their own experts and extended the new status to a condition that affects more than one-third of adults and 17% of children in the United States.

"Recognizing obesity as a disease will help change the way the medical community tackles this complex issue that affects approximately 1 in 3 Americans," said Dr. Patrice Harris, an AMA board member.

We have had similar discussions in relation to the pathologizing of "mental problems" that might actually be normal variations of human behavior, especially among the younger generation. This seems to me to be just another technique, cut from the same cloth, as to how to view every human issue as a business opportunity. If the only tool one has is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Likewise, if the only tool one can find with which to make a profit is some sort of synthetic chemical, drug, vaccine, etc., then everything in the human condition is seen as a need for chemical intervention.

The unholy alliance between the medical insurance industry and the allopathic medical industry has brought our culture to this place. Add in the synthetic "food" industry, and we are going down the tubes in a hurry.

Gotta go, get out into the sunshine, to stop this depressing line of thinking.

Additionally, I see it as carte blanche for unlimited bariatric surgery, a failed strategy that will add to overall insurance premiums. No profit too big or too small!

Last year, the Mayor of New York city pushed legislation to limit the size of sugary drinks to no more than 16 oz. Also, about 18 months ago, the Imperial College in London published a study recommending that fast food operations dispense statins with each fast food order. Can you see where this obesity thing is going and who's really going to prosper as a result of obesity as a disease?
