All of us in the present generation are well aware of the word ‘obese’. Many of us face this health hazard and live with the consequences daily. ‘Obesity’ is defined by WHO as “abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health.” The recent years have seen an alarming growth in obesity and obesity-related issues worldwide.
The main cause of obesity is the difference between calories ingested and calories used. It is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive eating, lack of exercise, and in some cases- genetic makeup. In 2013, obesity was classified as a disease by the American Medical Association.
Speaking of India, obesity has expanded to newer levels in the 21st century, with morbid obesity affecting 5% of the country’s population. A large part of the cause is an increase in consumption of processed and canned junk food as well as an unhealthy living style. Lack of physical activity and dependency on technology are also largely responsible for the humongous increase in the rates of obesity.
Not only the weight gain, there are several other diseases and health problems owing to obesity, some of them include cardiovascular diseases, a strain on other organ systems, constant weakness and lethargy. All of this prevents a person from living a normal healthy lifestyle.
