Hello Doctor! This week’s blog is REAL simple. Here are 7 Quick Steps we suggest this week:

  1. READ the headline below.
  2. REALIZE the magnitude of it.
  3. HIT THE LINK to the referenced article.
  4. READ the article.
  5. CONSIDER how such a stat affects your patients and community.
  6. THINK about how you will help fight the problem.

The Headline:
“Obesity now kills more people worldwide than car crashes, terror attacks, and Alzheimer’s combined”.
The Magnitude:
  • More than 10 percent of the world’s population was obese in 2015 … and trends would indicate it is likely higher now. That’s 603.7 million adults and 107.7 million children.
  • The researchers estimated that a high body weight contributed to 4 million deaths globally. That’s 7 percent of the deaths from any cause.
  • That is more than the deaths caused by traffic accidents, Alzheimer’s, or other deadly issues that get a lot of airtime, like terrorism, combined.
