DADS Podcast #9: Should we be so focused on obesity?
The return of Deputy Biscuit Officer Aiken to the podcast allows him to speak on a similar topic to one that he chose for a particularly controversial real life Discussion and Debate Society session (Wednesdays 7:30-8:30 ER149), but unfortunately couldn't attend.
Gabriel strongly believes in shifting focus from obesity to health in general, Will has various opinions opposing Gabriel including one involving the military, and Aiken argues for the increased responsibility that people should have for their own health.
