Weight Loss: Health Risks Associated With Obesity
The health problems associated with obesity are numerous. Obesity is not just a cosmetic problem. It's a health hazard. Someone who is 40% overweight is twice as likely to die prematurely as is a normal-weight person. This is because obesity has been linked to several serious medical conditions, including:
•Heart disease and stroke.
•High blood pressure.
•Gallbladder disease and gallstones.
•Breathing problems, such as sleep apnea (when a person stops breathing for a short time during sleep) and asthma.
