You see a lot of fat Mexicans waddling around in Texas, but this big boy takes the prize. It’s really a waste of medical resources treating him. Let him eat himself to death. There’s not much the medical profession can do anyway other than keep these obese whales alive for a little longer.
The world’s fattest man is nearly 15 stone heavier than first thought, it has emerged.
Doctors believed Mexican Juan Pedro Franco weighed nearly 79 stone when he was taken to hospital earlier this month for surgery to help him walk again for the first time in six years.
But tests have shown his true weight to be 92 stone 9lbs, just over a stone short of record-breaking compatriot Manuel Uribe who reached a peak weight of 94 stone before dying in May 2014.
Doctor Jose Antonio Castaneda, the specialist who is now assisting Juan Pedro, described the find as ‘alarming’ but said he was still planning to put his patient on a three-month diet before surgery.
‘Everything we’re doing has been mapped out and if everything goes to plan in a year and a half we’ll have him down to between 12 and 14 stone.
‘Initially we didn’t think he was going to be apt for this treatment because of his level of obesity and a lung problem he suffers, but now we’re seeing a more promising horizon.’
Mexicans are the fattest race (ethnic group), I believe. Which makes it easy for me to find a woman for Juan Pedro.
Or if he likes them really obese, perhaps this one would tickle his fancy.
