Episode Summary

EDIT
MY FIVE YEAR OLD WEIGHS 230 POUNDS!
AIRED:
Today MAURY meets the mothers of dangerously overweight babies. Their infants and toddlers weigh as much as a kindergartner and they are at risk for developing serious medical problems. They know their situation is out of control, but they have tried everything and they just don't know where else to turn. MAURY helps these parents find the support their children so desperately need. Plus MAURY has updates on some of the obese babies that have been on the show in the past—have they lost any weight?moreless

  • Why does Maury ALWAYS concentrate on how BAD it is for kids to be heavy? There is NO medical research which differentiates between obesity with poor diet and obesity with a healthy diet.moreless

    5.0
    It is NOT a foregone conclusion that obese babies are unhealthy and will become unhealthy teenagers and adults. If you feed your kids on junk food, fried chicken, fries, burgers etc and they drink soda non-stop or even worse slim-line or \'lite\' sodas containing aspartame then they will almost certainly be in a life-threatening condition, but if they are fed healthy foods and drinks there is NO certainty that they will be in the least unhealthy. Maury should perhaps do a show which concentrates on HEALTHY obese kids.



    As the mother of a 300 lb 13 year old, I can assure everyone that a) she is fed on organic meat, vegetables, milk etc and very seldom has junk foods, and b) that she does NOT have high blood pressure, diabetes or any other health problems normally associated with obesity but in reality caused by excess trans-fats and aspartame.



    Would Maury please address himself to this in a less biassed manner.
