Re: Santa Claus: a public health pariah?

31 December 2012

Time has come to start thinking that there is more that one obesity. Obesity is an adipose tissue expansion and aesthetically might be out of fashion. However, in some cases being obese is an advantage in some chronic diseases. Therefore, the first think we should be doing is to define when obesity has to be treated. Let's not get ahead of ourselves...Santa may be a metabolically healthy obese.
