  • Obesity is a disease characterized as a condition resulting from the excess accumulation of body fat. In conjunction with increased stores of body fat, obesity has also been associated with increased mortality influenced by increased incidence of hypertension, atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease, diabetes, cancers of the breast, colon, prostate, endometrium, ovary, and cervix, and decreased overall survivability when compared with nonobese counterparts.1-5 As a consequence, obese… CONTINUE READING
