The Epidemics of Obesity and Diabetes
As you are probably aware, there are epidemics of obesity and diabetes in the US right now. And they are projected to get even worse in the next several decades. Almost half of Americans are already overweight. With that extra weight comes a significant increase in other diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. Yes, in case you didn’t know, obesity is a risk factor for developing cancer.
What is causing these epidemics? There are many factors, almost all of which involve the choices we make every day, such as the foods we choose to eat and drink, and how much exercise we get on a regular basis.
