News stories surrounding U.S. Airlines discriminating against any person who is overweight has been making quite a stir with the U.S. populace.
Although most believe obesity is attributed to poor health habits and over-eating; what is not taken into consideration is millions of people taking prescription drugs that actually contribute to contracting obesity. Isn’t it strange how pharmaceutical companies and physicians don’t normally disclose this information to the public
There are enough problems in this world with religious and racial bias accompanied by acts of violence. Why this kind of discrimination at Airlines ?
Sheesh ! I wonder how a family member accompanying a loved one at the airport who is obese and have to stand by and watch their loved one stand on a public scale in front of all travelers before being allowed to board a plane.
Seems a little off color and extremely biased to me that an Airline company would have to stoop to such practices. And how about pregnant mothers who naturally gain weight during pregnancy. Does that mean they get their ticket bumped or worse not allowed to board the plane ?
