Facts on Obesity/ Overweight
Abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that posts health hazards is defined as obesity/overweight. Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of obesity and is calculated using a person’s weight (in kilograms) divided by the square of his or her height (in meters). While a person with a BMI of 25 is considered to be overweight, people with a BMI equal to or greater than 30 are said to be obese.
Obesity has become an epidemic, with at least 2.8 million people dying each year because of being obese or overweight. Generally known to prevail among high-income countries, obesity has affected middle- and low-income countries as well.
