Fat ban

With obesity spiraling out of control in the US, a new bill in Mississippi would make it illegal for restaurants to serve fat customers.
The bill would allow health inspectors to revoke the license of any restaurant that "repeatedly" feeds extremely overweight people.

Two-thirds of adult Mississippians are overweight and 30% obese, according to the latest federal figures.

The politicians who introduced the Bill admit that it is not likely to become law.

They were just aiming to bring attention to the problem.
