Physical Danger

As far as danger is concerned, you can become overweight, unhealthy, and prone to disease just like anyone else. Bill Bradley is a self-professed overweight dietitian who lectures people about how to make healthy choices. 

The irony is not lost on him. "I'm not perfect and I've had struggles with weight issues my whole life," he said. "That's why I'm a dietitian. Not just to help other people, but to stay focused on helping myself, too." Hey, if a football coach can be an out-of-shape sixty-year-old, why can't a dietitian preach their knowledge?
