The obesity epidemic now exceeds nearly every other preventable cause of death by a wide margin, including starvation. According to reports from Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, Science Daily, the NIH, and the CDC, scientists estimate that as many as one in five deaths globally or 11 million a year are now related to this growing epidemic.
You never hear things like, "Those who are healthy are most at risk for this new virus, so eat some more fries!"
No, it's those who have diabetes, heart disease, or any of the other myriad of potentially preventable diseases that are affected. Sure, we can't fix the fact that some of us are getting older, and some things aren't avoidable, but that's no reason to give up trying to stay healthy. I don't know about you, but I have a lot more energy and feel better when I'm in good physical condition too.
Let's work together to get and stay healthy this year. Maybe we'll encourage others around us to do the same through our example.
