@KoiwiGal - I don't think that people should judge either. But I also don't think it's wise to say that fat isn't a health issue at all. Everything is a health issue, but for some reason fat is particularly vilified. We don't make fun of people for eating cured meats, even though they have been directly linked to cancer.
If someone happens to have abdominal obesity then that is their own business. I think they should be educated about the risks, like people are educated about the risks of skydiving and then let them make decisions like a grownup.
