"A common example is obesity. While many have come to terms with the idea that they eat and drink too much, many more are absolutely shocked at the suggestion that these are related factors."

In that particular example, I think people are more shocked at being called obese by a doctor for being a little overweight as the "common" usage of non-medical people of the word obese is to mean someone who is humongously fat and can barely walk without waddling.
