WORLD DAY AGAINST OBSESITY MARCH 04

[04-03-2021] WORLD DAY AGAINST OBSESITY  MARCH 04

Obesity is a global scourge and a disease that affects more and more people around the world. In 2016 more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight and more than 650 million were obese.

Every year, it is estimated that at least 2.8 million people die as a result of being overweight or obese.

According to the World Health Organisation, children need special attention: childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health problems today.

Overweight children are at greater risk of becoming obese in adulthood, just as they are more likely to suffer from diabetes or cardiovascular diseases, which will obviously impact their health and life expectancy.

Are you overweight? Consult our dietitians or our nutrition doctor.
