Fat and Disease

This paper discusses the topic fat and its effect on disease.

This paper discusses the article, “Cause and Effect Linked Again: Fat and Disease”, by Eric Nagourney. It explains that it has long been known that obesity can lead to adult onset diabetes, known as Type 2 diabetes, but new studies show even more health risks from obesity, including developing Type 1 diabetes as a child or young adult. It examines how obesity is one of the greatest health risks facing society today and examines ways that this can be conquered.
“With obesity a growing problem in our nation, more studies are being done on the effects being overweight has on the body, and scientists are reinforcing just how dangerous it is to be overweight. Writer Eric Nagourney notes, “In one study just published, British researchers reported that children who were overweight developed Type 1 diabetes earlier than those who were not.”
