Why Obese Mothers are Good for the Economy

Obese Mothers are Good for the Economy


Growing Obesity Increases Perils of Childbearing

With Doctors and hospitals starving to make ends (Medical profits are at an all time high.)  meet in this tough economy the more challenging pregnancies faced by fat women and their is a ray of sunshine to the starving medical industry. It's simple economics. When medical care is more complicated and more specialists need to be brought is on a case costs go up... WAY up and so do profits!


Here is an excerpt from an article that appeared  the NY Times  that explains the good news for our struggling health care industry. Click here to read the entire article.

As Americans have grown fatter over the last generation, inviting more heart disease,diabetes and premature deaths, all that extra weight has also become a burden in the maternity ward, where babies take their first breath of life.  

About one in five women are obese when they become pregnant, meaning they have abody mass index of at least 30, as would a 5-foot-5 woman weighing 180 pounds, according to researchers with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And medical evidence suggests that obesity might be contributing to record-high rates of Caesarean sections and leading to more birth defects and deaths for mothers and babies. 

Hospitals, especially in poor neighborhoods, have been forced to adjust. They are buying longer surgical instruments, more sophisticated fetal testing machines and bigger beds. They are holding sensitivity training for staff members and counseling women about losing weight, or even having bariatric surgery, before they become pregnant.

At Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, where 38 percent of women giving birth are obese, Patricia Garcia had to be admitted after she had a stroke, part of a constellation of illnesses related to her weight, including diabetes and weak kidneys.

 Is it possible to be too fat? 

If you are an OBGYN the answer is a resounding NO! Here are the impressive numbers on C-sections alone that clearly show that the fatter a pregnant woman is the more revenue the health care industry can make.

Body Mass Index   vs   Percentage of Caesarian Births    

       20 - 25                    11%        

       25 - 30                    18%                

       30 - 35                    25%              

     35 - 40                    33%                  

     Over 40           43%                     

Very obese women, or those with a B.M.I. of 35 or higher, are three to four times as likely to deliver their first baby by Caesarean section as first-time mothers of normal weight, according to a study by the Consortium on Safe Labor of the National Institutes of Health

There you have it fellow fatlings; another example of how obesity is good for the economy. I, Fat Bastardo only wish that fat haters Mrs Obama and Ms MeME Roth would see that. AND once again, GLUTTONY IS GOOD!

Fat Bastado's Op Ed 

We little piggies are a market.
We little piggies stay home.
We little piggies need insulin
You little thinlings need none.
And the greedy gluttonous medical corporatists and doctors go OINK OINK OINK all the way to the bank!

Now do you see how gluttony is good for the economy? Right now 20% of the US GDP is health care and we fatlings are responsible for a huge slice of that. If that thinling Obama had not gotten in and "fixed" health care it would be 25% of our GDP. The medical industry relies on our gluttony and we falings rely on them. If we got thin it would be a disaster for the medical industry.

What would happen to companies like Liberty Medical and the Scooter Store if the American Obesity Epidemic were to slow or Belly God forbid actually reverse? You fitness nuts are being very shortsighted. GLUTTONY IS GOOD!

Fat Bastado Answers the Critics

Gunner said... Schweine! Widerlich! Schießen Sie sie! 

Fat Bastardo oinked back: Lighten up there Hitler, we don't shoot fat girls in the USA. We harpoon them with our bratwursts and fill them like a cream puff with our man cream.

Henri said... Femmes obèses américains sont vulgaires et grossiers. Les femmes de la France ont un parfum délicieux.

Fat Bastardo oinked backHey Frenchie, if you frogs can eat snails surely you would not mind the fat girl musk and licking her yeasty maw. Our fat girls maybe fat and a bit funky smelling but most of the shave their arm pits once in a while. 

I Fat Bastard boned a couple of skinny French women and I do admit that they smelled and tasted great.

V2 Rocket said... IMO, pregnant women who pig out, drink, smoke and drug are worse than rapists. IMO Rapist should lose their balls and pig dog women should lose their ovaries.
Fat Bastardo oinked backIt would seem that many people feel that way V2. You are new here so I will fill you in. My blog partner Proud FA had a long career of porking fat girls but now he is engaged to a skinny woman who we call Thinnette. Proud wants to have kids and he reasons that fat girls are not healthy enough to produce healthy kids so he plans to sire his kids with Thinnete.
Joe Feeds said... If the US is not careful Europe will surpass them in feederism. Our Obesity levels are growing slower that theirs. I blame Obama.
Fat Bastardo oinked backJoe, I don't blame Obama. I think it is simply peaking. Not everyone wants to be fat and besides we need thinlings. It would be tough surviving without them. That is the downside to childhood gluttony. We need these kids to serve us fatlings.
