Is it time to get tough on obesity?

Maine is not among the worst states when it comes to prevalence of obesity, but health

government’s role in combating obesity? Should schools become more active in

Should health insurance companies be allowed to penalize subscribers for chronic

obesity? Or would such efforts be too heavy-handed? Is being obese a right people should

have without consequences?
