Obesity was not a common issue in the past. But a modern lifestyle with all the conveniences it offers has made mankind lazy. Work occupies a large part of the day and if you have an office job you could be sitting in the one place for hours. With little time available to cook, takeaway and processed food have become the go-to options. The body doesn’t get healthy food nor does it get the right amount of physical activities it requires. The result is obesity. Since the year 1975, the instances of obesity on a global level that has been observed has tripled. Obesity is now a serious concern not just for the grown-ups but also for children. In fact, childhood obesity is increasing at an alarming rate. Childhood obesity doesn’t just increase the vulnerability to ill health for children but also can cause serious consequences when the child grows up.
