Obesity: a growing problem

Published: 2016.06.03 - 14:01:55   /  web@renciclopedia.icrt.cu  /  Juan Blas Rodríguez  /  translated by  Luis E. Amador Dominguez  /luis.amador@renciclopedia.icrt.cu
  

Obesidad  un problema que creceToday experts estimate that 1,500 million adults and 170 million children have problems of obesity and excess weight; however, it seems that these figures, which are far from diminishing, will increase in the coming years.

Scientific research, in which this problem is widely discussed, claims that the situation is serious in almost every country in the world, even in those with the lowest income, and if drastic measures are not taken this will result in an unsustainable global health problem.

If nothing changes, it is estimated that within 20 years there will be more than 7 million new cases of diabetes, 8 million coronary patients and 539,000 of cancer in the United States, just to mention a few.

One of the key factors that affects obesity and its consequences is the arrival of the famous "junk food", but there is also the influence of environmental, genetic aspects and personal behavior.

Pressing and more effective actions, according to experts, point to prohibiting the advertising of soft drinks and fast food, which are aimed at children and higher taxation of these products. As for us, we believe that physical exercise is something that is within our reach, and will enable us to physically and spiritually feel satisfied with ourselves.
