I wonder what the % of patients are ones who have done something to cause them to go to the dr to begin with like climbing a tree and falling out of it or not paying attention to your driving and get into an accident. It is scary to think that now you will have to weigh in b4 you can or cannot be treated. And by the way a 6'-5" guy could easily weigh that much so he is saying women because even a 6'-5" woman shouldnt weigh that much. Okay probably not but I guess in the scheme of things it is his right. What about employers who say you have one year to quit smoking or you are fired or you have 1 year to quit drinking or lose weight...already hard enough to get jobs. BTW I weigh 124 lbs so I have no dog in the race.View Thread
I don't think she was bullied either. Why she made a major production out of the email smacks of ratings. I, like another poster, cannot believe this is the first one she has ever gotten. There have been a number of tv personalities who have lost their job because their looks fade and they want someone younger or as in her case someone thinner. We are a nation of fat people - face it. She should make something positive out of this and start a crusade to get healthy.View Thread
