Top 10 Dangerous Diseases Caused by Fast Food Obesity – Updated Article With Extra Information on Obesity Diseases
Fast food obesity is prevalent in the U.S. and it is extremely strenuous for the entire body, which was never intended to carry that much extra weight. Your heart will also end up working harder than it should, which eventually leads to obesity heart disease. There are also various other obesity diseases, the result of which can be fatal.
Obesity Disease #1: Heart Disease. This is one of the deadliest and most common fast food obesity diseases. People with obesity usually have lower levels of good HDL cholesterol and higher levels of bad LDL cholesterol. This increases the risks of obesity heart disease tremendously.
Obesity disease #2: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. This is the main cause of female infertility, and obese women have a much higher chance of developing this disorder. This obesity disease also results in excessive hair growth and irregular menstrual cycles.
Obesity Disease #3: Diabetes (Type 2). This is one of the fastest growing obesity diseases. What happens here is that your pancreas is unable to supply sufficient amounts of insulin to convert sugars into energy. This means that the unconverted sugar floats around the blood, which is very harmful.
Obesity Disease #4: Dyslipidemia. This is a major fast food obesity related disease, which results because of abnormally high trygliceride and LDL cholesterol levels. Dyslipidemia eventually leads to obesity heart disease.
Obesity Disease #5: Sleep Apnea. This disorder means that you might actually stop breathing while sleeping, which causes you to wake up suddenly several times during the night. You may not even be aware of this disruption of sleep, but it prevents you from receiving proper sleep and results in daytime fatigue.
Obesity Disease #6: Blount’s Disease. This disorder occurs when an excessive amount of weight gets placed on growing bones, making it more prevalent in children. This is especially the case with the lower part of the body.
Obesity Disease #7: Arthritis. This is a condition that is a result of strain on the joints for extended periods. Excessive body weight certainly causes such strain and makes arthritis develop in younger people.
Obesity Disease #8: Respiratory Problems. Obesity makes your lungs work harder, so that they get the necessary oxygen where it is needed in a timely manner. Asthma is also more common in those who are obese.
Obesity Disease #9: Stroke. When the arteries, which carry blood to the brain, get blocked, the end result is a stroke. Such blockages happen in obese people much more often, because they usually have high cholesterol and blood pressure, which contributes to blockages.
Obesity Disease #10: Liver Damage. It is difficult for the body to deal with fast food obesity, because these foods usually do not get distributed appropriately. When this is the case, fat can build up around the liver, which may result in its inflammation, scarring, and even permanent damage.
Some other fast food obesity diseases include angina, glucose intolerance, gout, and congestive heart failure. Obese people also face the risks of certain types of cancer. In addition, there are several diseases that can occur because of the strain caused by extra body weight, such as osteoarthritis and hernias.
Fast Food Health Risks & Cost
Obesity Risk and Fast Food Cost
Fast food increases your weight. Body Mass Index, BMI, is an indicator of body fat that is measured according to your weight and height. The higher your BMI, the higher your risk of obesity and chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, gallstones and cancer. Research by the Department of Economics and Institute for Health Research and Policy in 2009 found the price of fast food -- not the accessibility of fast food restaurants -- is statistically associated with BMI of teenagers, particularly among families in low to middle socioeconomic status. The low-cost of fast food influenced weight gain, the report showed.
Stroke Risk and Cost
Fast food restaurants use processed foods with high amounts of sodium to flavor your meals. Sodium is a risk factor for high blood pressure and stroke, the third leading cause of death in the United States. Scientists at the University of Michigan predict that the treatment of strokes will cost the United States $2.2 trillion by 2050 unless Americans change their eating habits and maintain normal blood pressure.
Statistics of Health Risks From Eating Fast FoodBy Matthew Lee
Weight Gain and ObesityA typical fast food meal is extremely high in fat and calories. Weight gain occurs when you consume more calories than you burn in a day. In a 2004 study published in "The Lancet," researchers found that eating more than twice per week at fast food restaurants is linked to significantly more weight gain over time than occasional visits. Similarly, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley in 2009 noted that living near a fast food restaurant is linked to a 5.2 percent greater risk of obesity.
Type 2 DiabetesThe 2004 study noted that regularly eating fast food doubles your chance of developing insulin resistance, which heightens risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Cardiovascular ConditionsHigher densities of fast food restaurants are linked to a greater risk of cardiovascular health problems. In a 2005 study published in the "Canadian Journal of Public Health," researchers at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Ontario, Canada found that regions with high concentrations of fast food restaurants are 2.62 times more likely to have extremely high levels of hospitalization for coronary problems. A 2010 study by researchers at the University of South Australia supported this.
