Obesity is a serious problem. It is a silent killer as it suppresses everything except hunger. It crushes bones, squeezes muscles and suffocates lungs and heart. Obese people are unable to do anything including necessary tasks like toilet and bathing.

It won’t be wrong to say obesity the chronic disease Asia as there are many people in Asia suffering from obesity. Reason for Asians suffering from obesity is the pressure. People work hard. They feel work pressure all the day and to reduce pressure, they eat and they eat fast food.

Americans say that obesity is a genetic problem and there are studies to believe so but lifestyle is the major reason for obesity. Obese people become a burden on their families and society. But the problem can be cured at an early stage. It is easy to control obesity with diet and exercise but people need to be educated on the aftereffects of the problem.

There are many studies on obesity and all the study papers are published in a database open for all. The database on the chronic disease Asia is created by an organization of governments of different countries and civil society groups. The organization invites all the members of the society concerned for the health of people to help in spreading awareness about obesity.

Aftereffects of obesity could be life threatening and its treatment is expensive. Bariatric surgery is out of reach of people and so are fat control pills. It is learnt that people go to doctors for medical help only when they become too obese to be cured with medicines or surgery. The only help for obesity is to get education on the problem. People don’t know that they are gaining weight and also they are unaware of the many problems obesity could bring.

Obesity is one of the chronic disease Asia and for this reason it is in the discussion of medical health. Governments and civil society organizations are taking steps to curb this problem but they are unable to make any difference in this direction without help of the people. They need support from grass-root level so that their efforts could be reached at lowest level.

Leading a healthy life is the only way to curb this problem. It is a major concern for health conscious folks and they are doing enough to stay fit and active but there are many areas where people are facing this problem and what is more disturbing is that they are unaware of this problem.
