Some misconceptions about getting fat

According to the World Health Organization, the rate of obesity in the world has almost tripled since 1985. The UN agency estimates that in 2016, more than 190 million people in the world were overweight, of which 850 million were obese.

According to the World Health Organization, the rate of obesity in the world has almost tripled since 1985. The UN agency estimates that in 2016, more than 190 million people in the world were overweight, of which 850 million were obese.

This number explains why people from all walks of life have started using the term ‘obesity epidemic’. According to the World Health Organization, the disease kills at least three million people each year.

Scientists and policymakers have warned that the way obesity is addressed is wrong and superstitious. But which is true and which is false in this fight against obesity? The answers to these questions may surprise you. However, ‘obesity is a disease, not a matter of choice’ The

The United States is one of the countries most affected by the obesity epidemic. American health officials estimate that more than 36 percent of the country’s population is now obese. Since 2013, obesity has been considered a disease by the American Medical Association.

Nevertheless, in 2016, a survey by doctors’ news portal Medscape found that 36 percent of the country’s doctors and 47 percent of nurses did not consider it a disease. Eighty percent of physicians answer that the main reason behind obesity is lifestyle.

However, a report released last September by the British Psychological Society states that obesity is not a matter of choice. ‘Some physical and mental factors combine with environmental and social influences to cause overweight or obesity.’ The report said. ‘Obesity is not a matter of reluctance.’

Scientists have been speculating since the 1990s that obesity has a hereditary relationship. Last July, a team of researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology discovered that people with a family history of obesity were more likely to spread the disease to their offspring. Which has become much more common in recent decades.

Weight loss will be followed by fatigue and constant tiredness. The team studied 119,000 people in Norway who regularly weighed their height. As seen there, over time their weight has increased in tandem with the height. But some people have gained extra weight due to genetic reasons.

At present, a 35-year-old Norwegian with an average height is about seven kilograms more than others due to genetic predisposition, which is not seen in others. Maria Brandkvist, a researcher at Janan University of Science and Technology. ‘Overweight is always unhealthy’ The

issue of overweight and health complications is a well-known and well-proven fact. Recent research, however, raises the question of whether excess weight or obesity is always harmful to one’s health.

In 2012, the European Society of Cardiology published a large research report that contradicted some of the prevailing notions of obesity.

There, it is found that some people, despite being obese, are healthier and healthier in terms of digestion, with a lower risk of dying from heart disease or cancer than the general population. They do not suffer from high cholesterol, high blood pressure and are much more physically healthy than other obese people.

It is well known that obesity is associated with many chronic diseases, such as heart disease and cancer. But it turns out that there are some obese people who do not suffer from such metabolic complications, said Francisco Ortega, a professor at the University of Granada in Spain who is the lead author of the report. However, “physicians should take into account that not all obese people have the same type of problem.”

Researchers have studied 120,000 healthy men and women over a four-year period with a maximum age of 20 years. Participants in the study gained an average of 1.52 kg every four years and 6.8 kg in the full twenty years.

Processed foods, refined grains, fats and sugars play a major role in weight gain. Eating French fries alone has resulted in weight gain of one and a half kg every four years. On the other hand, due to eating more vegetables, the weight has decreased by 0.09 kg.

“Low-calorie diets work best when certain foods and beverages are eaten more or less,” the study said. “We must be realistic to avoid the frustration of losing weight.”

The ‘no overeating’ policy is the best policy in weight control. But shouldn’t the quality of calories be more important than the measure of calories in food?

Describing healthy foods, the World Health Organization says that the daily caloric intake of an adult should be 2000 calories. But there are also warnings. The company recommends that less than 30 percent of those calories come from fatty foods.

A 2011 study from Harvard University found that ‘calories are not just calories’ and that certain foods can lead to long-term weight gain.

Not expecting too much can be a positive aspect of life. However, research says there is no negative correlation between ambitious goals and weight loss.

According to a 2016 study in the Journal of the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, weight loss ambition has yielded much better results among 7 people with severe obesity.

Rich countries have obesity problems. Of course, the rate of obesity is much higher in developed countries, but looking at the list of obesity in the world, many should be surprised.

The Pacific island nation of American Samoa, where 75 percent of the population is thought to be obese, is the most affected by obesity.

It is true that the population of these islands is very low. According to the World Health Organization in 2017, 32% of the population is developing in developing countries such as Egypt and Turkey.

‘Obesity is one of the things that is created due to social inequality. The most obese state in the United States is Arakansas, the fourth poorest state in the country. Mississippi is the third poorest state in terms of obesity. Says Martin Cohen, who wrote the book I Think Before Eating.

According to the 2015-2016 National Health Service data in the UK, the rate of obesity among children living in the most disadvantaged areas is almost double that of the affluent areas. The researchers say that the main reason for this difference is that the price of healthy food is much higher.

Obesity has nothing to do with breast milk. Over the last few decades, there has been a massive promotion of powdered milk as an alternative to breast milk. But a World Health Organization study published in April found that breastfeeding could significantly reduce a baby’s risk of becoming obese.

In a study of 300,000 babies in 16 European countries, scientists found that babies who had never breastfed were 22 percent more likely to become obese.

However, experts also say that breastfeeding a woman’s healthy lifestyle also plays a role. Even then, the role of breast milk against obesity is undeniable, says researcher Jayo Breda.

‘Breast milk really has a lot of protective properties. There is evidence of that. People should be informed that its benefits are so outstanding.
