Dear Mrs. Miller,

First let me introduce myself: I am 48 years old, have been reading all your books in the past years, have 4 children.

Having read your (last?) book, “die Revolte des Körpers”, I have a question. There is the history of a man, called Andreas, who suffers from obesitas. Now, we all know that obesitas is one of the biggest problems in today’s society. When drawing the conclusion that many physical problems of today have their roots in the (abusive, neglecting) childhood, can we, in general, say that obesitas is one of them?

I am looking forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely, J. R., Netherlands.

AM: YES, we can say this without any hesitation. Every behavior that is directed against the health of a person and hinders the healthy functioning of the body and mind is a repetition of once endured mistreatment, neglect, confusion, lies, betrayal, perverted practices and the exploitation of the child used as a scapegoat.
