What is Obesity?
Obesity may be defined as a condition in which there is an excessive amount of body fat. This is one of the most commonest diseases found all over the world.
Common Causes of Obesity
Age: This is most prevalent in middle age and can occur at any stage of life.
Socio-economic: In developing countries it is more prevalent in the wealthy society, whereas in fully developed countries it is more common in lower-socioeconomic groups.
Heredity: Obesity tends to run in families. A clearer role of genetics helps in prevention of obesity on those who are most vulnerable. Eighty percent of the offspring of two obese parents become obese.
