People know that being obese is bad, but do they know what the effects of it can be? Many people don’t realize what can happen after being obese their whole life or even just a part of it. There is a whole list a diseases that are caused by obesity. Many of these diseases can be life threatening and they would have to change their lifestyle around them. Not only diseases can be life threatening, but those things could lead to mental disease as well.
Diabetes is a big disease that plays a large role in obesity. The diabetes statistics show that diabetes has increased 70 percent since 1995. Diabetes and Obesity go hand and hand. Just because somebody had diabetes does not mean that they are obese. Another disease is Respiratory disease. Respiratory disease (aka sleep apnea) makes the body work harder to breath and could lead to not breathing at all.
Can obesity lead to depression? Statistics prove that depression and obesity have no connection but they go hand and hand. If a person is obese, they often start to feel depressed. When somebody is obese and feel depressed, it could lead to suicide or any other type of self harm. Obesity does not lead to depression but depression can lead to obesity. Many people that are depressed often start to lose self confidence and think less of their self.
I believe that many people are uninformed about obesity and what harm it can do to your body. Being obese is just a overall bad thing for somebodies life. It can cause people to self harm and takes years out of their body. People just need to be more informed and do something about obesity. There are too many people that don’t know the consequence for being obese during their life.
