Could being overweight or obese keep you out of jail?
The Doctors discuss the case of a 72-year-old man, who was reportedly convicted in a tax scheme, and whose lawyer is reportedly arguing that due to his client weighing 273 pounds that he does not have an average life expectancy. The lawyer reportedly claims that the man's 6-year jail sentence is not fair due to how obesity can shorten your life.
The panel notes that 68.8 percent of Americans are obese or overweight, which can lead to an elevated risk for a stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
The Doctors note that being behind bars in a controlled lifestyle might cause the man to exercise more and possibly lose some weight and even possibly help to improve his life expectancy.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork adds, "If you don't want to go to prison, don't break the law."
