Obesity Increasing Non-Communicable Diseases:


Obesity is leading to an increase in non-communicable diseases like diabetes, hypertension, heart diseases, and cancer. India comes in the list of top ten obese countries after the USA and China. A study conducted in Chandigarh came up with the fact that 20.4% of its people are suffering from this disease. Diabetes has turned out to be a very serious problem and is affecting huge numbers of people since the past—anybody can become its victim. Millions of people suffer from diabetes every year. According to researchers, this horrible disease increased almost triple in the last 40 years. A new study has come to disclose that diabetes is becoming more and more life-threatening since one out of four patients with diabetes is under the age of 40. This definitely means that young people are also highly at risk. The main causes are improper life cycling, along with obesity.

A research team from the PGIMER, Chandigarh, has come out with the finding that 70% of the urban population in India is suffering from obesity. They came to this conclusion after conducting a study on persons between the age of 18 to 65 years. The researchers found out that 60% of sugar patients are obese and 25 to 35% have a BMI over 30.

According to the researchers at PGIMER, risk factors such as an unhealthy diet, lack of satisfactory sleep, and lack of exercise enhance the risk of obesity, increasing the number of diabetic patients. As if this were not enough, this then leads to the rise of other non-communicable diseases such as hypertension, heart diseases, and cancer. India is in the top ten list of countries with utmost obesity after the USA and China. A survey in the city of Chandigarh reveals that 20.4% of the population is affected by this deadly disease. More shockingly, it has been found that a plethora of children below the age of eight years have been diagnosed to be suffering from type 2 diabetes. More boys than girls are afflicted by this aliment.

They further add that altering food and lifestyle habits with regular exercise can cut the risk of hypertension, heart diseases, and type 2 diabetes by up to 80%. The researchers also commented that losing five to ten kilograms of weight may avoid the risk of diabetes and a number of other diseases.
