9780044408710: The Forbidden Body: Why Being Fat is Not a Sin

The author, herself a size 24, exposes discrimination in all its forms and reveals that this is far more threatening to a woman's physical and mental health than the health risks associated with being fat. She puts tough questions to Harley Street surgeons, dieticians and others with a vested interest in women wanting to be thinner, and talks to doctors who confess that prejudice, not science, makes them condemn fat women as "unhealthy".
