Know how 'Obesity' is the new form of ‘Smoking’
A recent study claims that sitting or obesity is the new form of smoking. Obesity doesn’t directly lead to deaths, just like smoking doesn’t kill people directly.
The study says that obesity leads to heart problems, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.
The difference between smoking and obesity is that due to more awareness, the use of cigarette is reducing in adults, but the number of obese adults are on the rise.
The research suggests regular movements, even in small ways, throughout the day. Small amounts of regular physical activity can help to reduce the health problem to some extent.
