Argentine “Obesity Law”

The Associated Press is reporting that Argentine senators passed a bill yesterday which now allows obesity and other eating disorders to be treated as diseases covered by public and private health care programs. This will help to fight obesity, bulimia and anorexia in the country.

The law also requires that high calorie foods carry a warning label and that the media cannot release diets that are not approved by a professional.

Sounds like another positive step forward and one that should also exist in the U.S.
