How "obese" is the state you live in?
Dear Longevity Insider,
Anil Bajnath MD here with your Monday roundup.
Most Americans (over 70%) are either overweight or obese. Studies have linked obesity with increased risk for serious health complications, including:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Liver disease and kidney disease
- Reduced fertility
- Numerous types of cancer: breast cancer, bowel cancer, etc.
- Osteoarthritis, a condition involving pain and stiffness in your joints
- Sleep apnoea
Culture and lifestyle play such a huge part in our health. Recently, the CDC released a very telling map of the U.S. giving incredible insight on obesity rates in YOUR area.
