FC: Obesity The disease | Research Project By:Dianne Quezada June 1, 2011

1: Did you know that obese people and including children have a chance to have problems with the memory and learning is like saying the heavy you weight the heavy it is on the brain. A psychologist named John Gunstand has said it can damage your heart and make it harder to breathe and also it can damage part of your brain most important for paying attention and learning new things(Science News for kids). Even though people want to say obesity is not a disease in my opinion supported by facts obesity should be considered on the disease list because an estimate of 400,000 deaths are due to obesity as well obesity is a risk factor for diabetes, hypertension, some cancers and other major diseases . | Intro

3: Obesity equals Deaths | According to a study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2010 34 percent of U.S. adults are overweight and an additional 31 are obese. CDC has estimated that average of 400,000 deaths were caused by being obese in fact in 2004 CDC announced that obesity was quickly becoming the leading cause of preventable death.(Gale Opposing Viewspoints)

4: Obesity equals major diseases | Due to being overweight and eating unhealthy food there are some causes that come out of it. Such as high blood pressure, increase of cholesterol levels, diabetes and for a few types of over 200 types of cancers.(procon.org)

5: Obesity is inherited when both parents are obese the chance of their kids being obese is 60% to 80%. And when both parents are thin is a 9% chance for their kids to be obese. About a million of 6 to 19years old are overweight.(Steven Findlay Obesity is a disease)

Print. | Opposing Viewpoints | People that disagree that obesity should be consider a disease say that obese people tend to live a long life and do not develop diseases. Obesity is a matter of personal responsibility. People become obese because they make bad dietary decisions and people also have said obesity is the result of sedentary life styles not illness.(procon.org) High blood pressure,increased cholesterol levels, diabetes and even certain cancers but it is still unclear if obesity is the cause. Evidence of shown that overweight but active individuals are at lower risk for cardiovascular disease.(Stephan D. Ball Obesity is not a disease)

8: Conclusion | From my point of view, obesity should be consider a disease. Around the U.S obesity is a major problem among children, young adults and adults and should be control and named as a disease. Some people feel that obesity is not a disease that it is just a lack of decision making when it comes to food. But i disagree, yes it is a lack of decision making but it is also a cause for many diseases and deaths. I feel that if people see obesity is a named a disease they would take better care of themselves. Do you want to be an obese person and have major diseases and have problems with the brain? "The heavy you weight the heavy it is on the mind"(John Gunstand)
