Fat Family in Front of Fast Food Background

University of Tulane : Department of Fat Studies

Ok, there is no such thing as a department of fat studies. Not yet, anyway. Universities and independent researchers are finally getting serious about studying problems related to and prevention of obesity. In the future, perhaps every university will have a department to study how we get fat. It's a problem that affects over half the population directly and consumes trillions of dollars. When will we, as a nation, finally say that lack of willpower isn't the greatest answer to an obesity epidemic. Native Americans have already switched their focus from infectious diseases to chronic diseases like obesity.

What Needs Studied

Food Marketing

There are billions of dollars spent on food marketing. Many of the fortune 500 companies are actually food manufacturers. There is a lot at stake for a lot of people. Health conscious people will consume little to no processed or refined foods. Since obesity is related to sugar consumption, you might expect the soda industry to suffer greatly, the sugar industry, and all other processed food manufacturers. Since the stakes are so high, it isn't surprising that food lobbyists have been effective at stopping the public from making grass roots changes. While it is true that you always have a choice, it is also true that it isn't fair to stuff junk food in front of my face every time you have a chance. Food marketing needs to be studied and changed. We need to wake up and promote good foods only.

Food and Discrimination Laws

The first amendment guarantees the right to free speech. Does this mean you can say anything you want? Well, not really. You can't say that cigarettes are a healthy replacement for eating apples. You can't go on a school playground and promote tobacco, alcohol, and drug use. Is it really any different to restrict some of the food products that promote obesity, premature death, high blood pressure, cancer and more? The law is touchy in this area, but it is clear that something needs to be done. Lawmakers need attorneys to research and present laws that will be constitution and still protect people from unwanted foods.

Obesity Discrimination

It is true that fat people are often not hired for jobs. They are cast out more with friends and tend to have lower self esteem. This is because of the way that they are treated. Fat studies need to be done on obesity cultural discrimination so that we can change the culture to accept people that are different.

As a person, it makes sense that it isn't right to treat people badly based on something they do not have control over. In fact, it just isn't right to treat people badly. In the past, laws have been passed to protect people from discrimination on race, color, religion, national origin, and ethnicity. Discrimination laws to protect fat people have been gaining traction in some locales. In California, you can sue employers that discriminate against fat people by not hiring them or for firing them.

Legislation

Why on earth is it legal to try and addict someone to a food substance for profit? Not only does it grate on your soul, but it also makes you wonder if the system has some real problems. To address these problems, the citizens need to be really assertive and stand up to the soda, sugar, and manufactured food lobbies. Strong research will arm citizens with the information to say no to obesity. That is why there will one day be a department of fat studies. It is something that must be done to battle corporate greed.
