Description of this Heartbreak

Obesity is the condition of being grossly fat or overweight. Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive food intake, lack of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility. It increases your risk of diseases and health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the U.S. was $147 billion in 2008 U.S. dollars; the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight. The good news is that you can take steps to lose weight. And losing even some weight can make a big difference to your health and how you feel.
Why does this break your heart?

Obesity breaks your heart because you don’t want to see someone going through something like that. The more the person eats in a day the more accustom they get to it. People love food just like they love sports. This can become easy to do. This can be hard for the person going through it or his or her family members. When someone gets bored or stressed they seem to eat more than usual. -Abby

Why should other people care about this heartbreak?



The increase in obesity is an economic issue as well. Estimates of the costs of treating obese children are relatively small but rising rapidly.If the heaviest health and economic burdens of obesity are borne by adults instead of children, why should the focus be on childhood obesity rather than adult obesity? There are two key reasons to focus on children. First, those who are overweight and obese as adolescents are much more likely than others to become obese as adults. Second, it is quite difficult for obese adults and children to shed excess weight.

Although there may not be universal agreement on what caused the increase in childhood obesity, there is fairly widespread consensus on several important points. The first is that obesity in general, and childhood obesity in particular, has serious adverse health consequences. Obesity cause many health problems.
