Judith Wurtman writes: "When I congratulated a friend on her promotion to the head of a non-profit organization, she smiled and then told me it almost did not happen. 'I learned that someone on the board did not want me to get the position and campaigned actively against me,' she told me.
'Why?' I asked. 'You were obviously the front-runner.'
'Because I am fat,' she replied. 'He told everyone on the board that he would not hire anyone who was fat. At least he is not criticizing my competence, only my size.'
But she was wrong. "
International Business Times
Having too much belly fat is the overwhelming norm in many developed countries, with as few as 10 percent of men and 20 percent of women having a healthy amount. While the overall obesity crisis appears to be leveling off, the proportion of people with unhealthy amounts of abdominal fat is still rising.
Does your genetic code contain information that can help you lose weight?
It’s a serious question in science, and in business. Now, the makers of Lose It aim to find out. The nine-year-old mobile app — from Boston-based parent company FitNow — was early in the field of using smartphones to log workouts and meals, and track progress toward health goals. Users aren’t guaranteed to shed pounds, of course, but a National Institutes of Health study last year found that the app's most dedicated users lose weight nearly 73 percent of the time.

Obesity even in adolescence may raise the odds for colon cancer in adulthood, a large new study finds.
Overweight and obese teens in Israel had about a 53 percent higher risk for colon cancer as adults, researchers found.
And for rectal cancer, obesity — but not overweight — was tied to more than double the risk for girls, and 71 percent higher odds for boys, compared to normal-weight teens.
