      Poll: Obesity a disease?

      Poll: Obesity a disease?

      The American Medical Association has officially designated obesity as a disease.

      The AMA says the disease requires medical treatment and prevention.

      One-third of Americans are obese. That's on top of the one-third who are overweight.

      A board member of the association says recognizing obesity as a disease will help change the way the medical community tackles this complex issue that affects approximately one in three Americans.

      Tonight in the Daily Pulse we're wondering: Do you believe obesity is a disease? Yes or no? Why or why not?
