The desire for thinness in the culture has developed into a medical opinion. In the 1930s for instance being five feet five inches tall and 125 pounds was considered thin. A person of the same height and weight today would be considered obese. Although no one can point to a single study to prove it, the perception of thinness is firmly entrenched within the medical establishment.
This has led to the negative image of obese people has resulted in a lack of accurate diagnosis and timely treatment. People who are overweight are less likely to seek medical attention since they are afraid of being considered a failure. This can lead to an illness that is more serious than someone with an objective view of their weight.
