Obesity recognized by ADA

What's stopping dentists from talking about obesity  (This is an article that appeared today in an online dental journal that I subscribe to:
DrBicuspid.com )

Dear Publisher/Editor,
Apropos of this article here is what I am doing about obesity in my orthodontic practice:
Yesterday, I sent this note to the physician of a patient for whom I am doing  Orthodontic Jaw Wiring (OJW).
As you can see I am an avid believer that it is our right and obligation to help the obese regain control of the eating habits that are causing them so many other problems regardless of whether or not there are manifestations of obesity in the oral cavity per se. 
Would you like me to write an article about my work? 
Yours truly,
Dr. Ted Rotthstein
