Here we see another tragic victim of the anti-science woke critical theory of "body positivity" who appears to have completely bought into the "healthy at any size" nonsense.
Every death is a tragedy, and this "body-positive" activist, unfortunately, truly bought into the lies of the fat studies movement which claims that being fat is healthy.
Jamie Lopez, the founder of a Las Vegas salon for plus-size women and a model for the "body positivity" movement, died last weekend at age 37.
Lopez, according to TMZ on Monday, was hospitalized for heart complications. Her salon, Babydoll Beauty Couture, which became the center of a reality television show on WE tv, published a statement on Instagram announcing her death.
"We ask, on behalf of the Babydoll family, that you allow us time to process this tremendous loss," the statement read. "Please keep our Babydoll family & team lifted in your hearts and prayers."
Her show, "Super Sized Salon," which launched this summer, only lasted a single season before the main star's death.
Lopez used to be so overweight at 846 pounds that she was confined to her bed, then she lost 400 lbs so she could literally get out of the house and began this business that was aimed at plus-size women.
Not much is public about Lopez's death beyond "heart complications," but the connection between obesity and heart problems is well established, contrary to the activist mantra of "healthy at every size." Nor is heart disease the only danger that obesity threatens its victims with. Individuals with obesity, which includes more than 40 percent of U.S. adults, are at higher risk of cancers, diabetes, strokes, breathing problems, high cholesterol, and mental illness, to name a few of the comorbidities that often plague the obese.
Though few details are known, it's far from inconceivable that more than anything else, Lopez died of complications from obesity, marking another tragedy for "body positivity."
Nearly 77 percent of the adult U.S. population is considered, at minimum, overweight. In other words, Americans at a metabolically healthy weight are in the minority. As American weight gain accelerates, so too will the popularity of the movement to normalize, and even glorify, sedentary lifestyles run on processed foods.
The body-positive lifestyle is a huge danger and obesity is a major problem in the United States.
I don't support bullying overweight folks, but we can't use this woke and inclusive language that encourages unhealthy activities and body weight.
This is another tragic example of how the woke lifestyle has deadly consequences.
