Obesity , Stress , Alcohol and Drugs is the modern day curse of the world. Many Western Cultures and to some extent even the east have moved away from correct eating habit and have opted for the quick and unhealthy way to eat.
All this is just the tip of the iceberg of the generally unbalanced modern lifestyle that promotes a metabolism that is unregulated and unable to utilize food correctly. When this process starts people find themselves in the never ending vicious cycle of increasing weight , often followed by many medical problems , such as sugar diabetes , high blood pressure and cholestorol - all this is related to a symtom called metabolic syndrome
The consequences are chronic illness due to a wrong lifestyle. Together with this comes enormous medical costs.
How you treat your body today will effect how you will live your life in the future.
