Description

This article is from the Big Folks Health FAQ, by sharon@ecs.ox.ac.uk (Sharon Curtis) with numerous contributions by others.

A7) Are there any informative web pages on health for fat people?

Yes, several. Some are fatphobic, others not.

Here's a topical (as of Jan 1998) article from the NEJM:

-> http://www.nejm.org/public/1998/0338/0001/0052/1.htm

Sharon Curtis (the maintainer of this FAQ) also maintains some pages entitled
Health Information about Fatness, which can be found at

http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/oucl/users/sharon.curtis/BF/Inf/main.html

These pages offer information straight from research articles about how
fatness relates to health.

The Medical Sciences Bulletin has a page which focuses on obesity:

http://pharminfo.com/pubs/msb/obesity.html

Although it refers to obesity as a chronic disease, it does contain a lot of
useful information and common sense. It tackles several common misconceptions
about obesity and considers the social implications too.


There is also a page for AHELP (Association for the Health Enrichment
of Larger People), at
