According to a study published in the July issue of Psychological Bulletin, overweight children are stigmatized by their peers as early as age 3 and even face bias from their parents and teachers, giving them a quality of life comparable to people with cancer.
Those are bold words. We decided to prove the veracity of the study. We've asked two kids, one obese and one undergoing chemotherapy, to compare their experiences. Who will win?
Steve: "After chemo, when I vomited up bile for nearly three hours."
Craig: "I plan on going to a comic book convention."
