Benefits of Obesity! Islamic point of view!

I found this very unthinkable article in the net. There’s a Muslim university clinical professor of Medicine which has an article to defend “Benefits of Obesity”.

A Clinical Professor of Medicine from University of Louisville School of Medicine started his article with a verse from Quran: "…It may happen that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and it may be that you love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows, while you know not." Qur'an [Surah Baqara 2:216] And the rest of his article...

I can’t claim for medicine but just I don’t get it, how an academic person can associate an academic article to religious verses?! Just it’s crazy.
