  • 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.

    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.
