Nation's largest medical association classifies obesity as a disease

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (WTVB) - Obesity has become even more of an issue for Americans; it's now been classified as a disease by the American Medical Association.  Word of the classification came out of Chicago Tuesday after the annual AMA meeting.

Classifying obesity as a disease is expected to dramatically change the way the medical community handles the condition that affects an average of one-in-three Americans.
