This is a interesting TED talk that obesity could  be nothing more than a side effect (like the skin turns black and blue when you get a muscle bruise) of blood sugar issues.

It's not a conclusion but seems to demonstrate evidence he wants to research and we may be going about diabetes <-> obesity the wrong way. 

In essence diabetes causing obesity, not obesity causing diabetes.

I like how the person that wrote the letter's mental condition shows up in the fact that the believe that obesity is just some simple choice or a habit as they said in their letter. It's clear that this person's view of reality is skewed, and they themselves have never had to deal directly with or have had a problem of their own like obesity, drugs, addiction or a substance, etc. While some people choose to eat themselves into being obese and it can be a choice for them it is usually a choice of depression or the fact that they have given up (more common). Other people can't help their physical/chemical make up and the way their body processes the nutrients in foods (less common), either way, it is a problem for a lot of people.

She was doing good, but toward the end, you could tell it was getting to her, thus giving the prick the response he desired.

Sounds like a ratings grab. I wouldnt call the guy who called a bully. Just some dick. Just been turned in to bullying because that is one of several things that are hot in the media at the moment. I am in no way condoning what the guy did and do not think anything badly of overweight people. I just think this is another example of the media making something more than what it is.
