Dangers of Obesity

I read an article in the paper today that talked about the dangers of obesity. They are numerous:

- heart disease
– diabetes
– joint pain
– high blood pressure
– high cholesterol
– stroke
– infertility
– sleep apnea
– at risk for asthma
– at risk for developing cancers of the colon, breast, prostate, uterus, and others (just spotting rumors is more difficult in an obese person)

Only 12% of parents think their child is overweight when studies show that over 30% of children and teens are overweight or obese in the US.

It is never too late to start to make a change. I’m 53, and I’m doing it. You can, too!
