Schiavo Hailed as Anti-Obesity Champion
by Scott Ott

(2005-03-18) -- The National Institutes of Health (NIH) today praised Michael Schiavo for leading the fight against the obesity epidemic by removing the feeding tube from his wife, Terri, who has led a largely-sedentary life since taking to her bed some 15 years ago.

A recent NIH study shows that obesity can reduce life expectancy by up to five years.

"As the obesity epidemic rolls around the globe, one man has the fortitude to just say 'No' to food," according to an unnamed NIH spokesman. "Mr. Schiavo is a true American hero. At a time when others are treating the right-to-eat as if it were enshrined in the Constitution, he's putting his 'bed-potato' wife on a crash diet that will drastically reduce her risk of obesity."

Terri Schiavo's anti-obesity regimen is scheduled to begin today at 1 p.m. Florida time.
