Should Obese Pay More For Health Services
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

America has a really serious issue with obesity; it costs around 150 billions every year to deal with health issues caused by obesity. In fact, most diseases can be caused by really over weight problem.

When taxes were charged on cigarette with about hard earned 11 dollars, the rate of smoking and cigarettes consumers decreased big time. This proposed the idea of charging obese higher rates for health service which is already expensive to encourage them lose weight.

People are not sure whether this is a right decision or not. Some people think that these people are victims, they are poor, and left with no choice but buying no value, high cholesterol level, and inexpensive food. They claim that if such decision was made, it will discourage people to buy health insurance.

On the other hand, some people say that obese are no victims and that they made the choice of having bad food for their health and even if their families were obese as well, this makes a very low portion in their case which can be overcome by healthy food and exercise. That's why they should pay for the unhealthy choice they made and save the health insurance money for people who really deserve it.

Personally, I liked a third opinion. The ones who should really pay for these health insurance expenses are the companies who are making, promoting, and tempting people to buy these unhealthy products, and the access to a wider range of healthy products should be easier.

Of course, if you are overweight, this shouldn’t be the main concern to you. What you really need to care about more is your health and the bad things obesity is doing to your body. Stop all bad habits, start exercising, eat healthy food and you will be able to lose weight. There are lots of tips, books, and diets that you can follow. If you were trying for so long without any good results, you should probably visit the doctor to make sure that you don’t have any health problem stopping you from losing weight.

This last opinion is the best and right one from my point of view cause there should be rigid and firm barriers between people and these unhealthy choices that cause lots of diseases to our youth and kids that might end by death at a very young age.

Please share your opinion and which decision you tend to make
