Description:
The health consequences of obesity are many and varied. They range from an increased risk of early death to chronic illnesses that have a negative effect on quality of life (8). It increases the risk of diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers (9, 10). Other health impacts of excess weight, for which there is emerging evidence, include asthma, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, chronic back pain, infertility, maternal and foetal morbidity and mortality (10-12). Body weight status during childhood and adolescence are predictive of adult overweight or obesity and the associated risks.
