    Self Awareness!  No doubt.  From it all things either heal or deteriorate!

    Obesity..a common affliction in developed countries..

    In and by itself, it is not harmful..a few pounds here and there is fine..however when it gets beyond a certain point, the fat then covers the vital organs and impede on their function..

    Heart disease is the top killer of both men and women in the States. Many factors can lead to heart disease, including (but not limited to) obesity and poor diet, smoke and pollution inhalation, alcohol abuse, stress and lack of exercise. Cancer is probably not far behind and caused by many of the same factors.

    I would have to say it is obesity. Many people will say heart disease, diabetes, etc. but the underlying cause behind most of those ailments is obesity.

    From what I understand, it is obesity. Obesity is linked to diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc.

    Fatty food is known to contribute to obesity. But exercise and physical fitness play a larger role than restricting food in controlling obesity. "Diet for obesity" or "Exercise for obesity"? read more

    I believe that I have heard that heart disease is the leading cause of death, but I am not positive. It seems to me that diabetes is the fastest growing cause.
