Shameful of Boy Scouts to Pick on Fat Kids

The decision by the Boy Scouts to not let scouts participate in its National Jamboree if they have a BMI higher than 40 is disgraceful, according to a column in the Broward Palm Beach New Times. The Obesity Action Coalition is urging the Boy Scouts of America to let all scouts go to the jamboree, regardless of their size. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
