The Health Problem of Obesity


The Health Problem of Obesity

Obesity has risen to epidemic levels in the United States. Individuals with obesity may suffer devastating and costly health problems face reduced life expectancy, and experience stigma and discrimination. The high prevalence of obesity likely results from a multitude of factors: inherent genetic and other biological traits that differ among individuals, aspects of the environment, and behavioural factors--which may have both genetic and environmental influences. Obesity disproportionately affects people from certain racial and ethnic minority populations and those who are socio-economically disadvantaged. The continued efforts of government and other organizations will be valuable toward reducing obesity, so that people can look forward to healthier lives.
