Obesity kills 2.8 million people each year. In this case, death is not a decision, it is determined by a family’s bloodline and genetics. Obesity is often attributed to poor dietary habits and a lack of physical activity, but the truth behind it is more complicated. Humans don’t always have the choice of whether or not they are obese. It can be genetic. Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to an extent that it may have a negative effect on health. The result of this is the complex processes by which the body converts food into energy—it can also be influenced by chemicals in the environment (over which we have limited control) and genetics (over which we have no control). More than ⅓ of U.S. adults have obesity. Overweight and obesity kill more people than underweight.
Obesity is death. Whether or not the life choices each person has made, can always lead to obesity and it WILL kill. Obesity is hardly a choice. It is a medical condition in which excess body fats have accumulated to an extent that it may have a negative effect on health. There are absolutely no positive effects on obesity. Evidence on obesity is showing the benefits of physical activity for breast and colon cancers. The growing epidemic of obesity provides a challenge to clinical practice and the implementation of guidelines for the management of weight. Physical activity, body size, and metabolic efficiency are related to total energy intake. It is difficult to assess the independent effect of energy intake on cancer risk. Obesity can be a choice for only some. The choices don’t last forever, but the negative health effects do. Obesity kills.
