Avert Obesity Crisis, need for aggressive approach
As it relates to longevity, excess body fat robs victims of quality and quantity of life. People who are overweight or obese often have health problems that may increase the risk for heart disease. The obesity can be the cause to myriad other health problems in vicious cycle. They are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar with hyperinsulinism and oestrogen dominant. In addition, excess weight may cause changes to your heart that make it work harder to send blood to all the cells in your body.

Liver is the biggest internal organ and the busiest organ. Problems usually no signal until its too late
Unlike your gall bladder or appendix, you can’t live without your liver.
Your liver might just be the most underappreciated organ in your body.
Working 24 hours, never rest and never complaint – never give a hint or clues it is overwork, not showing sign of not well, never give clues of so much burden by your lifestyle until very late stage.
Are you doing something to your liver?
Diabetes has become so common that people don’t take it a serious disease anymore. Pre-diabetic can be as many as half of population above 40 years old. A big mistake is downplaying the significant of pre-diabetic, diabetic and the danger of sugar.
The health complications that diabetes fosters are many, including but not limited to the following:
High blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke – 75 percent of diabetics have high blood pressure (130/80 mm Hg or higher). Death from heart disease and risk for stroke is 2 to 4 times higher among people with diabetes.
Confirmed: Belly Fat associated with visceral Fat is Far More Dangerous than Having a Total BMI
A study on belly fat presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress confirms that visceral fat – the type that gathers around your internal organs – is far more dangerous to your health than you might think.
The traditional index of obesity, BMI (body mass index), has been proven to be terribly flawed as having a normal overall BMI and high abdominal obesity was found to be more dangerous than having a total BMI in the obese range.
For example, cardiovascular deaths in the study were 2.75 times higher for those of normal weight who had big bellies compared to those with both a normal BMI and a normal waist-to-hip ratio. It also implies that monitoring one’s belly fat is more important than watching BMI.
CONFIRMATION OF SUGAR’S LETHAL DANGER
Increase glucose –> increase insulin –> increase body fat –> insulin resistant –> inflammation increase –> increased free radicals –> Accelerate Degenerative Diseases.

Body Mass Index(BMI) – Better Predictor of Cardiovascular Disease than serum Cholesterol
Published in Archives of Internal Medicine
University of Zurich did study on 17,791 men and women who participated in community health promotion initiative, 31.2 years follow-up. Within the study period 2,170 men 1,761 women died, 749 the former and 630 the later died of cardiovascular disease.
The researchers calculated 10 year models of fatal CVD using cholesterol or BMI, they found out that BMI better discriminate risk than cholesterol.
