Another Solution To The Problem

There is a lot of debate over whether or not obesity is a disease. It boils down to the concept that fat people have no willpower. I have also heard that it's because so many people have it, it can't be a disease but a social trend.
This led me to another thought: what if the presumption is that something common isn't a problem but a common condition (like growing old is a symptom of age that we all suffer)? Does this mean we should live with it? If so, does that mean was can end racism by making everyone into a bigot? Or make everyone an alcoholic so that alcoholism is a common state of being? Just because something like obesity is prevalent, it doesn't mean we have to live with it or accept it.
