Obesity a Danger to Life Span

                          A group of researchers have found that life span may decline by 4-9 months due to Obesity. One in three Indians are now Obese and the largest increase have been seen in children. The report maintains that Obesity could cut an individual's life expectancy by 5 to 20 years as it increases the risk of dying early from heart disease, diabetes, cancer and kidney failure. However, long-term consequences of Child Obesity Epidemic are yet to be seen. Researchers have suggested a series of measures to combat Obesity, including restrictions on junk food advertisements aimed at children and a coding system to identify healthy food.
