Serious Health Issues Linked to Obesity

Obesity has become a serious health problem in the United States (US): nearly 35% of Americans have obesity. Obesity is not just a problem of “girth control”; it is now considered a chronic disease by the American Medical Association, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, the American College of Endocrinology, the Endocrine Society, the Obesity Society, the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

It is, in fact, a national epidemic according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And it is not just a weight problem: it can have serious effects on a person’s physical, metabolic and psychological health. If you try hard to lose weight, but that scale won’t budge, maybe the reason is hidden inside your body.
