Eric Slover Eating Right Section 2 10-7-2011 Extra Credit #2 One particular policy may be a surcharge of a decent sum on people who are obese on Medicaid. People will be charged because they are overweight, and the only way around this fee is to go on a diet plan prescribed by the person’s doctor. Obesity is indeed a disease, and also a powerful case in the United States, however is it totally necessary to charge overweight people on Medicaid? Obesity does not necessarily impair the normal functioning of a body as other diseases do. Many people with a BMI in the obesity range are not physically impaired and live normal lives. Unlike other diseases that lead to shortened life expectancy or death, some obese people live long lives and do not develop diseases commonly associated with obesity, such as diabetes. The main cause of obesity is excess eating, people who enjoy food too much who also have bad metabolisms, in turn makes them heavy. Just because people make the decision to eat whatever they want doesn’t mean they need to be charged a fee because of their weight.
