Is this Fat Shaming?

Simple as Fat founder Jon Gaunt is on top form at the BBC1 Sunday Morning Live Show to discuss the recent campaign by Cancer Research UK that links obesity to four common types of cancer.

In this studio discussion it’s clear that the BBC want to discuss whether or not alerting the public to the cancer risk of obesity amounts to “Fat Shaming”…

Never one to sit on the fence, Jon is keen to point out that the key point is a health issue – namely that obesity is linked to terrible diseases like cancer, and the principle cause of obesity is the consumption of sugar and starchy carbs.

Enjoy watching the lively debate!
