"Fat shaming" may qualify as medical malpractice

Georgia residents probably trust that their doctor knows what's best when it comes to his or her personal health. Since it has been established that being overweight can cause or exacerbate a slew of health issues, it is not uncommon for a doctor to recommend that a patient aim for a body weight considered to be healthier. However, many patients say they feel pressured to try trendy new diets that may have adverse health effects in an attempt to please the doctor, and some now feel that a practice often called "fat shaming" classifies as medical malpractice

Drug crimes and police corruption

Georgia residents are certainly aware that being convicted of a crime, especially a drug-related crime, can bring lasting consequences to a person's life. Due to a nationwide rise in the use of illegal substances, which some now refer to as an epidemic, drug crimes are taken seriously by law enforcement. It falls upon the police to investigate gather evidence to use in the prosecution's case, but not all police officers can be trusted to complete the job without giving into the temptation illegal drugs may have.
