    I just heard on the radio, that in the United States of America, 'obesity' is now recognised as an illness, so they're going to have to cough up billions to cover claims for illnesses, such as stomach upsets, bad back ache's, knee ache's etc..etc..etc...

    Is this stupidity gone mad?

    Comments please.

    If that's the case, when you fill your insurance form in for a renewal, if you are fat they will hike the price up a lot!

    They will probably raise the prices for everyone to cover the cost...which sucks for people who aren’t overweight and shouldn’t be punished for being healthy.
