ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Even though the American Medical Association has recently declared obesity as an illness, others are disagreeing with this, saying that obesity is a voluntary lifestyle choice.

Many diseases start out as lifestyle choices, including alcoholism, drug addiction and gambling addiction, then after a prolonged time turn into a disease. So the same can easily be said of obesity.
