Fatberg - Wikipedia
> A fatberg is a congealed lump in a sewer system formed by the combination of non-biodegradable solid matter such as wet wipes with grease or cooking fat. Fatbergs may also contain other items which do not break down when flushed into a toilet, such as sanitary napkins, cotton buds, needles and condoms, as well as food waste washed down sinks. The resulting lumps of congealed fat can be as strong as concrete, and require specialist equipment to remove.

Dr Peter Attia, a surgeon, talks about how obesity isn't simple, how we need to understand that the science is not absolute and how much more research needs to be done, and how doctors need compassion more than passing judgement.

His wake-up call was his own T2DM diagnosis, which came despite him eating and exercising "properly."

Why you should stop trying to lose weight - The Washington Post
More fatlogic

"Although weight matters when it comes to health, the true path to wellness may be to not try to lose weight at all."

Concern trolling:
"Actively trying to control weight may be an effective tactic for some people, but for others it can be downright destructive. A 2005 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition noted that about 20 percent of overweight people are successful at long-term weight loss. But what about all of the people who try but fail to lose weight at all or put it right back on?"

What persons with physical disabilities can teach us about obesity
Both disabled and obese persons experience widespread discrimination as well as insidious societal messages regarding the need fix, cure, rehabilitate, lose weight and/or improve mobility. For both groups of people, their bodies are assumed by others to represent permanent poor health and low quality of life, or in other words, a burden on an already stretched healthcare system.
