  • Overweight and obesity are the fifth leading risk for global deaths. At least 2.8 million adults die each year as a result of being overweight or obese.

 

  • Obese individuals (BMI ≥ 30) are 83 percent more likely to develop kidney disease than normal-weight individuals (18.5 < BMI < 25), while overweight individuals (25 < BMI < 30) are 40 percent more likely to develop kidney disease.

  • In a study carried out, about two-thirds of urban, professional, high socio-economic status Nigerian adults are either overweight or obese. Female gender and older age were independent predictors of overweight and obesity; while middle or high socio-economic status were independently associated with obesity.

 

  • People who are overweight are more likely to have high blood pressure, high levels of blood fats, and high LDL (bad cholesterol), which are all risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

 

  • More than 80 percent of people with diabetes are overweight.

 

  • 68.8 percent of individuals diagnosed with arthritis are overweight or obese.

 

  • Obesity increases risk for endometrial (uterine) cancer by 39 percent, esophageal cancer by 37 percent, kidney cancer by 25 percent, colon cancer by 11 percent and post-menopausal cancer by 9 percent.

 

  • Both overweight and obesity at midlife independently increase the risk of dementia, Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia.

Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR CLIMENT helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is drclimentscott just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on ( Thank you and God bless you Doc climent Scott. drclimentscott@gmail.com drclimentscott@gmail.com contact him on his whats-app number here +2347036879479 +2347036879479.
