Current research on obesity provides us with obesity statistics that are quite simply appalling. Obesity in the U.S.A is at epidemic levels and it is far past time to begin addressing this life-threatening problem.

The common causes of obesity are generally always the same:

Failing to remain physically active.
Over consumption and other poor eating habits.
Eating foods of low nutritional value.

Most other factors for being overweight and obesity are negligible when compared to the primary causes of obesity listed above. Along with the unbelievable obesity statistics, the levels of obesity related diseases are also at all time highs.

Obesity diseases account for almost every known disease including:

Coronary heart disease
Kidney failure
Liver disease
Myocardial infarctions
And so many more...

Here are some of the incredible obesity statistics that we must begin to reverse through proper eating habits, healthy food intake choices and daily physical exercise:

Over 58 million Americans are overweight
Over 40 million Americans are obese
Over 3 million Americans are morbidly obese
More than 80% of Americans do not engage in adequate physical activity
Over one quarter of all Americans are considered to be "completely sedentary"
In adults between 30 & 40 years old, there has been greater than 78% increase in Type II diabetes cases since 1990

More obesity statistics to consider:

More than 85 percent of all diabetes cases are due to obesity and being overweight
More than 70% of all heart-related disease is heavily correlated with being overweight and/or obese
Almost 45% of all breast and colon cancer cases are heavily related to obesity and/or being overweight
More than 30% of all gall bladder operations are caused by obesity and/or being overweight
More than one quarter of all obese people have hypertension (high blood pressure)

Childhood obesity statistics are equally frightening:

Only 4 percent of children were considered obese in 1982. Now, more than 30% are.
Over a quarter of all obese children are showing symptoms of the development of Type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Of those children developing Type II diabetes, more than 60 percent of them are also showing one or more signs of cardiovascular disease.
Our children are taught how and what to eat by us - their parents and advisors.

These obesity statistics are collated by professional health organizations and research universities. They should not be taken lightly. These are epidemic numbers. Our children are dying. We are dying. Almost all of these health issues and diseases can be effectively reversed through the initiation of permanent lifestyle changes concerning how much we eat, what we eat,  the manners in which we eat, the reasons we eat and our exercise levels. Obesity help is readily available from a number of professional sources. There is no great mystery involved. Protect your health and the health of your family starting today.
