Obesity is a state in which abnormal or excessive fat
accumulation in adipose tissue impairs health and which may lead to Diabetes.
In most cases, it is the outcome of
energy intake exceeding energy outlay over a period of years. It is defined in
adults as a body mass index (BMI) above 30. Within the UK the data from the
Health Survey for England 2006 revealed that 24% of adults (both men and women) were
obese and an auxiliary 44% of men and 34% of women were overweight. Around 16%
of childr en aged 2 to 15 years were obese and an additional 14% were
overweight. For those aged 2 to 10 years, 16.3% boys and 14.4% girls were
obese. For those aged 11-15 years, 17.6% of boys and 19.0% of girls were obese.
The diet of an
organism is what it eats, which is largely determined by the availability, the
processing and palatability of foods. A healthy diet includes preparation of
food and storage methods that preserve nutrients from oxidation, heat or
leaching, and that reduce risk of foodborne illness.
A poor diet can cause
deficiency diseases such as blindness, anemia, scurvy, preterm birth,
stillbirth and cretinism; health-threatening conditions like obesity and
metabolic syndrome and such common chronic systemic diseases as cardiovascular
disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. A
poor diet can cause the wasting of kwashiorkor in acute cases, and the stunting
of marasmus in chronic cases of malnutrition.
