Dozens of firefighters had to be called to the scene of a 63-year-old man’s home after he fell and became stuck for more than 24 hours!

It wasn’t until after being on the ground, unable to move, for an entire day that the morbidly obese man called his best friend, Don Estess, for help. Rescue crews arrived soon after but were met with a challenge: how to get the 500-lbs patient out of his house!

According to officials, the inside of his home was filled with clutter which made moving him out the front door impossible. The plan then became to demolish an entire WALL on his house, lay down wooden plank boards and transport him on a special stretcher into the ambulance!

Palm Beach County Fire Captain Albert Borroto explained how his team is trained for this operation, saying:

Halloween Grinch Passes Out Judgmental Letters Instead Of Candy To Obese Kids

Filed under: Icky Icky PooHalloweenHealthCute Kidz

halloween obese kids letter

Give. Us. A. BREAK!

While we're all about health and moderation, we'll defend Halloween as a major treat for kids during the year, because we really do feel like it's an integral part of childhood!

You know what's not an integral part of childhood? Having some lady give you a letter after she deems you to be fat, so you can give it to your parents, urging them to limit your candy intake.

To the woman from North Dakota who is doing just that to innocent kids, we have to ask: WHO HURT YOU, LADY??

Talk about a buzzkill!

While childhood obesity IS a problem, it's not Halloween's fault — it's

Morbidly Obese Dachshund Loses 50 Pounds!!

Filed under: InspirationHealthLosing it!ObeseCuteness!DogDachshund

OMG! This is incredible!

Obie the dachshund once weighed an incredible 77 pounds!!

He looked like a fuzzy brown beach ball!!

His life was in danger because he was literally over twice the maximum healthy weight limit for a dachshund.

The poor pup was nearly fed to death by his elderly owners, who eventually gave him up because of his failing health.

Thank goodness his owner Nora Vanatta knows a thing or two about animals, having a degree in animal science.

So after a year of a strict diet and lots and lots of exercise (and even more love) Obie is now a healthy 27 pounds!!

That's incredible!!!

Check out the video (above) to see this ahmayzing doggy in action!!

bsa boy scouts ban obese jamboree

The Boy Scouts: an organization that's really into banning people from things, regardless of who they are deep down.

It seems like we were just getting over the whole gay-ban thing from the Boy Scouts, so we're shocked that they're moving to ban yet another group of people — obese members!

The View Talks Proposed Obesity Tax!

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikFoodHealthObeseMelissa Joan HartNutrition

The ladies of The View got fired up, as they so often do, over a sensitive issue: sin taxes.

These "sin taxes" are basically taxes on things like sugary soft drinks that are meant to discourage people from buying them.

The whole idea is that obese people tend to buy less healthy foods and their obesity racks up billions of dollars in healthcare.

Melissa Joan Hart was there as a guest host but barely got a word in because things started to get a little heated.

The main problem is that some of the more unhealthy foods are actually way cheaper than the healthy stuff.

So a family on a budget could really run into some trouble with these proposed taxes.

Check out the video (above) to hear the ladies of The View tackle sin taxes.

This is a serious problem, you guys.

The obesity in America is really getting out of control.

The United States has the highest rate of obesity in the entire world. Right now, 35.7% of American adults are obese, as are 17% of our children!

So it's not all that surprising that we're requiring larger and larger coffins!
