Obesity

Obesity has become a focus of national concern and the nation's No. 1 public-health problem.

Health experts from the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control, and Prevention and the American Heart Association, have warned the publics of the dangers associated with being overweight. Statistically, over two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight, and about half of those are fully obese. [1, 2]

If this trend continues, most of America will become unhealthily and frighteningly overweight and/or obese within the next couple of decades.

The most alarming trend is the steadily rising number of obese children, where one out of every six children are now considered overweight. Obesity is defined as being more than twenty percent above the average weight for a person's age, sex, and height; or having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of over 30. The BMI is a height-weight calculation that correlates body fat with risk for disease. Obesity is more than an aesthetic problem. It is the second leading cause of preventable death in the U.S. (tobacco being first), and may soon overtake tobacco as the leading cause of preventable death.

Being overweight and/or obese are major risk factors for many chronic diseases including: * heart disease * high blood pressure and stroke * some cancers (uterine, breast, colorectal, kidney, prostate, pancreatic, and gallbladder) * arthritis * diabetes * gall bladder disease * sleep apnea * sexual dysfunction
