  • Doctor: “No Fat People in Auschwitz”

    Can you believe this? A medical doctor actually said that.

    In summary a patient asked her doctor about possible medical causes for her weight gain. The doctor told her not to worry about such things. Weight gain was just a matter of how much food she ate. Then the doctor asked her if she had seen pictures from the concentration camp Auschwitz, and if she had seen any fat prisoners there. ...

    The sensible way to lose weight is to try to correct the causes of becoming overweight. Not to ignore the causes and count calories while desperately trying to ignore one’s hunger.

    This calorie-fixation is really getting out of hand.




    Did the doctor not realize that people died there from the conditions if they weren't actually murdered?

    Thirteen years ago, when he started digging into the past to document the number and nature of Nazi-era ghettos and camps, scholar Geoffrey Megargee expected to identify perhaps 7,000 sites. He vastly underestimated his task. More than 42,200 sites will be named in the planned seven-volume encyclopedia that he is editing ...


    The Work Education Camp Watenstedt-Salzgitter, established "in some woods just to the northeast of Hallendorf" in Germany, could hold about 800 female prisoners and 1,000 males at a time. The Encyclopedia entry mentions 492 documented deaths there in 1942 attributed to "weak heart" or "shot while trying to escape."

    Maybe the mainstream approach to "weight-loss" could start including regular beatings.

    An idiot said something stupid one time? Completely irrelevant, unless we are just looking for stupid things to be offended by.

      I don't have the "before photos", but this is the results after "dieting down":

          It was an insensitive thing to say. I'm no huge proponent of being so PC that a stick is lodged permanently up one's ass, but statements like that really are just rude and thoughtless.

          While most survivors of WW2 have passed on, their history lives on through their children and grandchildren. Let's give it another 100-200 years before we make offhand comments like that. I'll be long dead and so won't have to deal with the fact that someone as educated as a doctor could talk such hurtful, ignorant shit.

          Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

              How about you call up the link and see what The Diet Doctor actually said?

              How about you reflect on what I actually said? Specifically, how about you reflect on WHY I put the term "weight-loss" in inverted commas? How about ypu reflect on my comment that the regimen in question resulted in death?

              It's not just insensitive. It's moronically stupid.

              The point is not "weight-loss" but healthy reduction -- and NOT of muscle mass. The point is to understand the CAUSES of the weight gain -- as he said, for example, cortisole injections could do that.

              Completely RELEVANT ... if you understand the matter, have just a little background, and give it just a moment's thought

                  Well, I think it's severely important that we don't forget this catastrophic event, but this doc is wack.

                    It's overshadows many more events that are equally deserving of attention is the problem.

                      Your point is that starving to death in a prison camp is a less than ideal way to lose weight? I guess I agree with you then.

                        Yeah, I the doctor's point isn't so much that starvation is good as it is that it is impossible to be fat if you aren't eating too much food. As an aside, a lot of those people in those pics are thin not because of lack of food but because of dysentery and other diseases. That was the real driving force behind the death rates in the camps. Even in the "model" concentration camp the Nazis used for show to the Red Cross and International Community still suffered death rates as high as any of the so called "death" camps. Cramp people like sardines in close quarters like that and they are going to drop like flies no matter how much you feed them, because if what you are eating goes right out of you before your body can absorb it you are still going to starve.

                          Hmmm, strange that nobody have come up with the "concentration camp diet” yet? (Except for the Germans of course!) People could sign a contract to voluntary stay in a concentration camp for a period of one year with almost no food and hard physical work! If you decide to break the contract and leave for no serious medical reasons, you must pay the triple price! So very cheap, only $ 100,000 for one whole year with almost no food and very hard exercise - and if you decide to leave before the time, you must also pay a rest fee of $ 300.000! Could have been a hit even in the times of peace…
