British: Don’t Say ‘Obese’

 

By Todd Starnes

The British government wants Britons and health care workers to stop using the word ‘obese’ because it might offend fat people, according to new recommendations sent to local communities.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) said officials should “carefully consider the type of language and media to use to communicate obesity.”

Guidance sent to health officials warned that “the term ‘obesity’ may be unhelpful – while some people like to ‘hear it like it is,’ others may consider it derogatory.”
