I am so glad that the American Medical Association has decided to classify obesity as a disease. This could lead to insurance companies having to pay for treatments, which could save money in the long run by postponing or even preventing weight related health conditions. It has always seemed crazy to me that they would pay for the conditions that are caused by excess weight but would not pay to prevent the conditions. It is time that people realized that being over weight is more than just a cosmetic issue.
