    Romania puts super-size seven-year-old on strict diet

    Romanian authorities have taken a seven-year-old boy weighing more than 100 kilogrammes (220 pounds) out of his parents custody so doctors can help him lose weight, officials said Wednesday.

    GOOD! The boy deserves a chance!

    I wish that happened more often here. I watch Maury sometimes when he has those morbidly obese children on there. It breaks my heart and I think their parents are UNFIT and should be charged with child abuse!

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    They were feeding him bread and lard (like, Crisco??). It's sad; however, it sounds like his parents are practically destitute and have no way to feed him healthy foods.

    It really is. And I am sure there is more to this story - genetics must be at play for a 7-year-old to get that large.

    I thought my 7-year-old was out at the outer limit pushing 90 pounds (he's not overweight - he's just big!) - 220 is hard to imagine.

    My prayers for this family.
