Is it wrong to be blunt about obesity?
By Alex Therrien
Health reporter, BBC News
When Cancer Research this week revealed that millennials are set to become the most overweight generation since records began, there was a key message – after smoking, obesity is the second biggest cause of cancer.
It called for a ban on junk food advertising and urged people to eat healthier, more balanced diets.
But not everyone appreciated the tone of the message.
The award-winning Danish comedian Sofie Hagen, who lives in London and has written for the BBC about her social anxiety, took to Twitter to criticise the campaign, which she said was “incredibly damaging”.
“Society viewing fatness as a negative thing is a thing that kills more than the cancer that you MIGHT get due to MAYBE something to do with you POSSIBLY weighing MORE than a CERTAIN weight POSSIBLY MAYBE,” she wrote in a series of tweets.
So is it wrong to be blunt about the dangers of being overweight?
+ Millennials ‘set to be fattest generation’
+ How I overcame fat-shaming
+ The simplicity of weight’
+ Is “fatness” a bad thing?
While the health risks of obesity – such as increased risk of cancer and other diseases – are rarely disputed among most doctors, some experts and campaigners think the way weight is talked about should change.
Dr Stuart Flint, a senior research fellow in public health and obesity at Leeds Beckett University, said overweight people were routinely discriminated against and stigmatised – or “fat shamed” – in the media, school, the workplace and even by health professionals.
