NO some people like to eat others eat out of stress and for some it is genetics. It is hard not to eat that last brownie sitting on the counter by that cold glass of milk? Especially when it's the last one. but to call Obesity a "disease" huh no! What next?

it depends- maybe if it is a medical issue- but- NO- not if the cause is self inflicted simply because you eat to much
