WHY NOT OBESE, OVERWEIGHT AND HEALTHY?
Can someone be obese and healthy? A new study and several experts say no. An obese person who has normal blood pressure, normal cholesterol and normal blood sugar levels is still at risk for heart disease, researchers report in the online edition of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Well?
Mr. Preacher thy sermons are meant to be recited but here leave us be, choice is our weapon, believe or not is a matter of mental capacity. Thank God we have experts to venture such studies but remember the same creator made every man unique.
In the study of more than 14,000 men and women, aged 30 to 59, those who were obese had more plaque buildup in their arteries, putting them at greater risk for heart disease and stroke than people of normal weight, the researchers found.
Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.
People have been trying to work out whether there is a group of people that are obese and healthy. Why could there not be, be enthusiastic. Remember the placebo effect 30% of medicine is showbiz.
It was noted that even if an obese person has normal blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels, those measures are likely to change over time and become abnormal, putting the patient at risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Yet researchers might sometimes compromise beyond the fact that we might not be able in some conditions or situations to direct the wind but hopefully be able to adjust the sails.
The study also questioned the need, both in terms of research and patient care, of trying to define healthy obesity. What are we trying to achieve? How does this help society? Why not make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.
The study invoked an enormous challenge at public health and individual level in dealing with obesity related disorders. Being obese doesn't just affect the heart. Being obese means you're more likely to have joint disease, psychiatric disorders and cancers. Probably over the next couple of decades, obesity and its consequences will be driving health care costs.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm...you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these. For sure people will not easily be persuaded an characters will always die hard.
The study revealed that even if there are people, particularly obese patients, who don't have a higher risk of heart disease in the short term, what about the many other things obesity does to the body? Are we ready to ignore that?
If any ambitious man have a fancy to revolutionize, at one effort, the universal world of human thought, human opinion, and human sentiment, the opportunity is his own, the road to immortal renown lies straight, open, and unencumbered before him. All that he has to do is to write and publish a very little lifestyle. Its title should be simple, a few plain words, My Heart Laid Bare. But this little story must be true to its title.
The researchers looked for buildup of calcium plaque in the heart's arteries, which is an early sign of heart disease. Calcium plaque is linked to atherosclerosis, which is a stiffening and hardening of the arteries.
The investigators found that the obese people had a higher prevalence of atherosclerosis of the heart arteries than the people of normal weight. If atherosclerosis is not managed, it can lead to heart attack and sudden cardiac death, among other heart conditions, the researchers noted.
The split in us is clear. There is a part of us that knows what it should do, and a part that does what it feels like doing.
Obese individuals who are considered 'healthy' because they don't currently have heart disease risk factors should not be assumed healthy by their doctors, says who, someone playing the omnipotent.
The study shows that the presence of obesity is enough to increase a person's risk of future heart disease and that the disease may already be starting to form in their body. It's important that these people learn this while they still have time to change their diet and exercise habits to prevent a future cardiovascular event.
Remember that when you meet your antagonist, to do everything in a mild agreeable manner. Let your courage be keen, but, at the same time, as polished as your sword.
There has long been debate about the relative importance to health of fitness versus fatness. The argument has been made that if one is fit, fatness may not be a significant health concern.
While fat and fit is better than fat and unfit, this study adds to a growing body of evidence that challenges that assertion. Excess body fat can increase inflammation, one of the key factors contributing to heart disease, and other chronic diseases as well.
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
The good news about fitness and fatness is that the same strategies that help people stay fit are the ones that help them lose weight. Eating well and being active remain the best medicine for both losing excess weight, and staying healthy, noted the study.
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
