obesity information

Obesity, or the accumulation of excess fat in the tissues, is often associated with genetic predisposition, lack of vigorous activity, overeating, a weak digestive system, and emotional disorders. Obesity is one of the fastest-growing avoidable health problems in the United States. It is directly linked to life-threatening illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer. More than 400,000 people die each year of complications of obesity, so there is great urgency in finding therapies to help people to lose weight and to sustain weight loss.
