"Findings from a recent study show that overweight (BMI:24.0-29.9) and obese (BMI:30.0-39.9) adults are at a significantly higher risk of metabolic disease, hypertension, dysglycemia, and cardiovascular disease events compared to normal weight adults in a U.S. sample from 2003 to 2010. Furthermore, our data shows that prevalence of overweight and obesity are increasing in our sample." - Anonymous Online Contributor

"For the past one year, overweight patients from a large district general hospital, which includes a broad range of patients, were examined using a clinical protocol.

"In a recent study, findings has demonstrated significant correlations between BMI and multiple other medical risk factors. The study also showed that the overweight BMI was a significant predictor for cardiovascular (CVR) risk, particularly for the CHD mortality and all-cause mortality (adjusted OR 1.8, 95% CI 1.1-2.9). Therefore, it was concluded that all cases of overweight should be treated as potentially seriously unhealthy and should warrant further clinical (and medical) attention." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Patients with BMI<25 who have an adequate baseline quality of life should be considered for inclusion in clinical trials if the primary outcome is anemia.

"Recent scientific literature is overwhelmingly positive on the negative health consequences associated with overweight/obesity. This is due, in part, to the success of numerous weight-related lifestyle intervention studies over recent years. The literature remains ambiguous and contradictory on the issue of whether or not obese people are at a significantly higher risk of other metabolic disorders such as hypertension. As such, there is still a great need for more research linking overweight/obesity with its own health consequences." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Food safety education at the elementary school level might be particularly beneficial for decreasing the risk of foodborne illness. Because children can drink liquids from bottles or cans, it is important to make sure containers and bottles are properly washed. It is also important to avoid consuming raw meats and other food products from the ground that has been in contact with animals if at all possible. Families can reduce the risks of foodborne illness by practicing safe food handling skills at home and in their communities. More importantly, foodborne illness can often be prevented by properly heating and cooking food and by handling food and cooking utensils appropriately, using proper equipment. Children are vulnerable to foodborne illness because they lack appropriate immunological defenses." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Researchers say the treatment is based on the notion that excess fat leads to heart abnormalities, which is the cause for weight gain. A possible treatment of this disease is to stop eating. This is the first time there has been a correlation between an overweight and heart conditions. This treatment works best on overweight patients that have trouble controlling their eating habits.

"When it comes to overweight, no particular age cutoff is considered more prevalent than another. The prevalence for overweight is significantly higher in pre-schoolers and also during the early stages of primary school than among older students. The average age of overweight in pre-schoolers is 3.9 years whereas the average age of overweight is 8.7 years in students in primary school. To summarize, there is a correlation between overweight and age; however, it is not a specific relationship." - Anonymous Online Contributor
