In the United States, obesity has reached epidemic proportions. Obesity is among the top 5 causes of preventable death in the US. That’s right, I said preventable! The fact is, obesity is closely connected to type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and an increased risk of several related cancers.
Each of these diseases relates to other organs as well. Given these health risks are quite real, losing weight, even as little as ten pounds, decreases your risks. It appears that losing weight is really good for you.
