Social, Economic and Psychological Effects
12 Sep 2007

Here's something else to consider. No one who is fat in America escapes the social and economic handicaps. Research has shown that over-fat people are less sought after for romance, less often hired, and less often admitted to college.  They pay higher insurance  premiums and they pay more for clothing. Psychologically, too, a body size that embarrasses a person diminishes self-esteem.
