It’s estimated that 71% of adults in the United States are overweight. But the health problem of overweight and obesity aren’t limited to adults, as the number of obese children and adolescents is also climbing. Being overweight doesn’t just put a strain on your bones, muscles, and heart, it also raises the risk of developing serious health conditions. In children and adults, being overweight increases the risk for high blood pressure and coronary artery disease. In adults it leads to a higher incidence of heart attacks and strokes and is one of the primary reasons adults develop type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea. Obesity has even been linked to some cancers, such as breast, colorectal, and uterine cancers.
