Obesity overview

Obesity, a complex medical condition characterized by excessive body fat accumulation, significantly impacts health and well-being. It increases the risk of developing various chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and certain cancers. Factors such as genetics, diet, physical activity levels, and environmental influences contribute to obesity. Prevention and management strategies include lifestyle modifications such as adopting a balanced diet, increasing physical activity, and seeking professional support. Addressing obesity not only improves individual health outcomes but also reduces the burden on healthcare systems and promotes a healthier society overall.
