Yes, they know now there is a mutant gene that causes overeating and also overeating can be a symptom of mental illness/distress.

yes, because its not all about "taking responsibility", there are many factors and until you live with the stresses of others...........then don't judge

No, I do not think so. People need to take more responsibility for themselves, not making excuses for not doing so.
