    The problem is that this method of weight loss is lazy.

    The NHS is there to help poeple live as long as possible. If treatment exists that helps morbidly obese people lose weight then i don't see the problem with it.

    Should smokers not get any kind of treatment due to their life style choice?

    The "morbidly obese" shouldn't put themselves in that situation in the first place (unless it is some big circumstance or illness they have etc.)

    Today it is not difficult for people to go out walking, running or do some other activity to stay fit. The vast majority have education and a choice of food so there isn't a reason for people to be ridiculously overweight.
    Those funds could go to curing or helping others with maybe more pressing issues.

    No I don't really think they should, they have done that to themselves.

    I don't know, maybe I'm being harsh but that's what I think.

    But neither should a smoker or alcoholic?

    That's what I said? I think in the other one, or at least I said that with smokers.

    Free chicken, protein powder and gym memberships for us skinny guys please.
    Loooool. That's nice thinking, but being skinny doesn't usually kill in the same way that obesity does. (Unless you're actually, seriously malnourished.)

    Mcdonalds should price its products in accordance to the customers weight. That will solve the problem.

    Just to clarify that was supposed to be a question, not a statement

    I missed the question mark.

    Just to point out...

    Smokers pay loads in tax and take less back in terms of pensions etc. They may well be less of a burden in terms of cost than non smokers.

    Ah kk. Looking at that sentence, it doesn't make too much of a difference with either.

    I'm going to stop 'arguing' now, too tired and I've just finished school for now! :jive:

    This is just silly. Start at the root of the problem. What they need is a lifestyle change, not surgery

    Someone who is overweight likely has an unhealthy relationship with food. Surgery will not challenge this problem, and it will mean that for the rest of their life they will not be able to eat normally. This in itself is an unhealthy relationship with food in my opinion. It does not address any underlying problems. You also hear of people that gain weight even after the surgery.

    Neither does referring to them as fatties. It's unpleasant and unnecessary.
