“Obesity” on @Wikipedia: “Ancient Greek medicine recognizes obesity as a medical disorder, and records that the Ancient Egyptians saw it in the same way.[168] Hippocrates wrote that “Corpulence is not only a disease itself, but the harbinger of others”.[2] The Indian surgeon Sushruta (6th century BCE) related obesity to diabetes and heart disorders.[176] He recommended physical work to help cure it and its side effects.[176] For most of human history mankind struggled with food scarcity.[177] Obesity has thus historically been viewed as a sign of wealth and prosperity. It was common among high officials in Europe in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance[175] as well as in Ancient East Asian civilizations.[178]”
