Don't know if anyone has posted this story yet, but it raises a number of issues as far as government intervention into a fat child's life. If figures T-Nation might enjoy this.
Questions for debate...
Does the government have the right to arrest a parent for "neglect" if their child is overweight? If so, at what weight and/or body fat %?
If the child is over 18, can the parent still be blamed? If so, for how many years after the 18th birthday?
How would the government monitor fat children? By requiring all youth to weigh-in once a year and then wait to be judged?
I think this could open up a whole can of worms. Thoughts on the subject??
