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!

600 Pound Woman PAID To Eat??

Filed under: Food

What's wrong with the world, you ask?

Well, paying a morbidly obese woman to eat and get heavier is definitely something that's not right with it! This was NOT healthy — we're talking physically for her, and psychologically for everyone involved!

Gym For Overweight People Only!

Filed under: FitnessGym TimeHealth

If you're self-conscious about your weight in front of really fit people, then going to a normal gym might be extremely difficult. Lucky for you, it's not the only option.

Enter the gym for overweight people only!

There are apparently only three of these across the U.S., but we're sure it'll become more and more popular. The one shown (above) is in Dallas, and we think it's a fab idea.

Anything to get people healthy! The only question is — do they kick you out when you drop below having to lose 50 pounds??
