Wrong

Neither researcher was from CDC. They are from Harvard.

Quote:
Should parents of extremely obese children lose custody for not controlling their kids' weight? A provocative commentary in one of the nation's most distinguished medical journals argues yes, and its authors are joining a quiet chorus of advocates who say the government should be allowed to intervene in extreme cases.

It has happened a few times in the U.S., and the opinion piece in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association says putting children temporarily in foster care is in some cases more ethical than obesity surgery.

Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Harvard-affiliated Children's Hospital Boston, said the point isn't to blame parents, but rather to act in children's best interest and get them help that for whatever reason their parents can't provide.

State intervention "ideally will support not just the child but the whole family, with the goal of reuniting child and family as soon as possible. That may require instruction on parenting," said Ludwig, who wrote the article with Lindsey Murtagh, a lawyer and a researcher at Harvard's School of Public Health.

You guys have an awful lot of oversight in the US anyway. It's a triumph of the American system that it has convinced it's people that they are free when it's closer to a police state then many nations


Sorry mods couldn't resist that quote.

You are right I was wrong about the institution the doctor belongs to. However my point was not who said it but what was said.

I think you can see where the CDC association came in.

"According to a 2009 study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), roughly two out of three children are likely to grow up to be obese adults. This statistic, among many others, has proven that childhood obesity is a serious problem in the U.S. But what should be done to solve this epidemic? Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Harvard-affiliated Children's Hospital Boston, proposes a solution in his July 13th, 2011 opinion piece in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The report advocates for severely obese children to be be taken from their parents and placed in foster homes to get them the proper care they need. But is this best way to end obesity? iMag went to pediatrician, Dr. Peter Inguagiato, Senior Partner at MD's for Kids and Andrew Malekoff, the executive director for the North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center in Roslyn Heights, N.Y., for their reactions."
