With all of the talk going around about obesity, and the relation of such to illnesses such as diabetes, heart failure and such, my question is this, "Who's fault is it?"
Should the fast food chains and other resturaunts be held liable for not only "what" you eat, but also the amount that you eat?
When being given the option of the smaller size vs. the larger size, how many patrons will not say the words,"Super Size Me!" or make return trips to the counter if the drink refills are free?
Is it right that the restraint is taken from the individual, and the blame is placed on the place of business?
If the decide that you have either ordered enough, or even consumed enough, do the have the option to stop serving you, or refuse to allow you to place your order?
When, and where does the ownership of obesity fall into the lap of the individual?
After all, that iconic figure of the establishments in question did not come outside, grab the patron and force the meal, "super sized" or not onto the patron, it was a choice of free will!
Should these lawsuits (and others) have been allowed?
