Obesity, an abnormal accumulation of body fat, is a complex endocrine disorder increasingly prevalent in children and adults. Being obese increases the risk of developing medical conditions like Arthritis, Breathing Problems, Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, Gallstones, Liver Disease, Paralysis, Reproductive Problems (in women) among many others. The lifespan of those suffering from severe obesity (Body Mass Index = 40) is reduced by as much as 20 years in men and by about 5 years in women. Obesity adversely affects the quality of life and may even result in death or disability.
When body weight in relation to height is 20% or more over the stipulated weight an individual is Obese.
