Fat in Japan: A crime?

Here’s a tasty tidbit for you that offers plenty of food for thought.
While many of us gain a pound or two or even six over the holidays and suffer the indignity of broken zippers and split seams; in Japan, employees face an annual FATsical exam!
Waists are measured! Humiliation is served up straight!
Because high health care costs are linked to obesity, employers must keep their number of chubbed-out employees to a limit. If the total of poundage exceeds the limit, the companies are required to pay more for health care.
Japan’s 5% obesity rate is the world’s lowest, as compared to the U.S. obesity rate of 35%!
Weigh-in here! Fair? Unfair?
Would an annual physical that zeroes in on your fatty number get you to the gym?
More food for thought!
21 Quick Steps to Health
Fat? Whose fault is it anyway?!
Spread the word … NOT the icing!

    Why have the companies pay? Why not have the employees who are the ones who exceed the limit fork over higher premiums, like smokers do here on life and health insurance? If it’s obesity, and not a cosmetic 10-15 pounds as one gets a little older we’re talking about, that would be a terrific idea. We are all at choice about what we put in our mouths and how much we move our bodies–and within a certain realism given our frames/genes, we can all be a healthy weight if we want to.
    I lost 20 pounds when it affected my health (high blood pressure) and I know plenty of people who were motivated to drop pounds by diabetes (my friend’s hubby dropped 117 pounds!) A financial price for obesity BEFORE people get a health issue would be a good thing to get people thinner and healthier.

    I believe that all facts about fat are not yet on the drawing board. Being obese is a handicap – a true physical handicap – one that comes from more than one factor(eating) but from heritage and DNA and upbringing. There is a FAT gene. I didn’t put it there. Obesity is as much an illness as is diabetes. I wrote a thesis on the subject. When diabetics and people with other heritary diseases are forced to pay more for health care, then that would apply to obesity, too. To make sick people pay more defeats the purpose of insurance – which is to spread the cost across a greater group of people. If you want to be discriminated against as they do in Japan then go to Japan.
