Thank you, Canberra Times

for publishing this opinion piece about the connection between anti-obesity hysteria (my word, not theirs) and eating disorders.

Thank you for pointing out the real and tragic human anguish behind eating disorders. Thank you for daring to question the tactics, if not the content, of campaigns against fat.

And thank you for this last line:

. . . let us not forget to protect the innocence and confidence of a child's innate self-image.
