Doctors have been telling patients (and themselves) that being overweight is bad for your health since the beginning of time. Clearly, though, the message is not getting across. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 36% of Americans are obese and that percentage is increasing every year.
Well, if you needed another reason to consider losing weight, according to a recent article in the Renal and Urology News, kidney cancer is now linked to obesity also. As well as esophageal, colon, breast and pancreatic cancer!
No one says that losing weight is easy. I can speak from personal experience as I am currently dieting with only moderate success but there is nothing better you can do for your own personal health than losing weight.
