How To Conquer Obesity; Causes and Consequences

Consequences of Obesity:

  1. Health Conditions:
    • Obesity is linked to a myriad of health conditions, including but not limited to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, certain cancers, and sleep apnea. The excess weight can strain the body’s organs and systems, leading to systemic health issues.
  2. Mental Health:
    • Obesity is not only a physical health concern but also affects mental well-being. Individuals with obesity may experience depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem due to societal stigmatization and challenges associated with body image.
  3. Reduced Life Expectancy:
    • Obesity is associated with a decreased life expectancy. The increased risk of chronic diseases and their complications can significantly impact the overall quality and length of life.
