A new study found that nearly one in five US deaths is associated with obesity, which is nearly three times higher than previous estimates
The number of Americans who are overweight or obese is probably much higher than studies suggest because the tool most often used is BMI, which is flawed and doesn’t take into account body fat distribution
Obesity-related deaths include those from type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, liver disease, cancer, dementia, and depression because nearly all have metabolic dysfunction as a common underlying factor
The only effective way to reverse these trends is to make changes in your diet and lifestyle; drugs are definitely not the answer
