Fat does not mean stupid and lazyDoctors are mistaken when they assert that fat people are lazy. This is the conclusion of researchers from Yale University in the USA. Many fat people complain about the fact that people often believe that their excess weight is associated with overeating or because they do not exercise.

Those who are younger, more likely to suffer from stereotypes about fat people. Those who do not work directly with obese people were more likely to see them in a bad light. "Found direct and indirect evidence that health care workers was associated stupidity, laziness and worthlessness with fat people," says Schwartz. Ian Campbell from UK forum on obesity stated that the results of the survey are not surprised and if questioned by English doctors, the results would likely be similar.
