I was working 30 years as a nurse focused on caring for individuals, families, and communities, ensuring that they attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and functioning. I still want to protect, promote, and optimize health, prevent illness and injury, alleviate suffering.
I noticed that Obesity Is Becoming A Big Problem In Our Society. I believe that a solution to obesity would help solve heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other diseases (attributed to obesity).
Carrying extra pounds is a health risk; the truth of the matter is that being obese can cut as many as 20 years off your life. Fortunately, losing even a small amount of weight can reduce and sometimes reverse the risks.
I will list here the potential complications of obesity:
Obese women are more likely to develop breast and uterine cancer, because body fat produces estrogen, a hormone linked to endometrial and breast cancer risk. In addition, they have a higher risk of complication related to breast reconstruction after mastectomy.
Researches show that obese people are more likely to develop dementia.
Overweight people are more likely to have diabetes and high cholesterol. That’s why they are more likely to suffer a heart attack earlier in life.
Being overweight plus limited physical activity could contribute to depression, researchers say.
Another risk caused by obesity could be chronic renal failure (CRF), a gradual, irreversible loss of kidney function.
Extra body fat in the chest and neck can restrict air passages, causing in time asthma.
Arthritis is credited to obesity too.
Last but not least, overweight people who suffer from diabetes are likely to pay more for their health care.
It is your responsibility to take care of your health to educate yourself on some of our most searched health topics, calculate your body mass index or check your symptoms.
Remember, overweight increases your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
That’s why you need to be serious about eating healthier and losing weight; change those bad habits and start to think differently about your diet and lifestyle.
To achieve steady, painless weight loss, take it easy, keep track of your achievements and reward yourself by doing something you enjoy. Research shows that taking baby steps—not giant leaps—is the best way to get lasting results.
In conclusion, I will do my best to write solutions that help optimize your health.
