[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]

Scientists find poverty literally makes kids sicker

According to a study published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, children from unstable, low-income homes are genetically predisposed to poor health. The researchers studied the DNA of 40 9-year-old African-American boys from stressful, disadvantaged backgrounds, and compared them with the DNA of boys with the same age and ethnicity who came from privileged families.
What they found was shocking: The environmental stress that the boys in the former group were exposed to changed their genetic material. The premature aging of their telomeres left them more vulnerable to physical and mental illness; those who had a genetic sensitivity to dopamine and serotonin — the neurochemicals associated with happiness and pleasure — were at even greater risk.

…..this is news?
news that really isn’t news

Things that have been said for years but now academia confirms as true… Now suddenly it’s a recognized travesty.
It’s always been horrifying.
The proof was not necessary to make any efforts to better this issue as a society. Should have just been done anyways…
