What is obesity?
In the past, obesity was understood by many in the following terms: excess body weight resulting from eating too much and exercising too little, due in large part to a lack of willpower or self-restraint. Obesity has recently been regarded as a chronic medical disease with serious health implications caused by a complex set of factors.
Recognized since 1985 as a chronic disease, obesity is one of the leading causes of preventable death. Obesity has been established as a major risk factor for hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and some cancers in both men and women. Obesity affects 58 million people across the nation and its prevalence is increasing. Approximately one-third of adults are estimated to be obese.
Obesity can result from a complex interaction of genetic, behavioral and environmental factors, which can cause an imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure. According to the National Institutes of Health, an increase in body weight of 20 percent or more above desirable weight is the point at which excess weight becomes an established health hazard. Lower levels of excess weight can also constitute a health risk, particularly in the presence of other disorders like diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.
