BBC NEWS | Health | Obesity - what's in a word?: "'Obesity' has become the new 'cancer'. A word that is taboo, that intimidates, that strikes fear, that promotes softer euphemisms.

In effect it has become an 'O' word.

They use the metaphor of a burning platform.

Perhaps the word 'obesity' is itself that burning platform."
