We must also recognize that fatness is more than an aesthetic issue. It could also be an issue for mental health.

This preference for thinness has developed into a medical decision. In the 1930s, for instance, being five feet five inches tall and weighing 125 pounds was considered thin. In the present, a similar height and weight would be considered fat. Although nobody can point to any study to prove it, the perception of thinness is widely accepted in the medical establishment.
As a result, the negative image of people who are overweight has led to a lack of accurate diagnosis and timely treatment.

This can lead to a lower state of health than a person with an objective view of their weight.
