Obesity has become a major problem in today’s society, not only in adults but also in children. It is scientifically proven that obesity is not caused by just overeating and physical inactivity, but also by other factors.
These are 5 most important factors that influence the accumulation of fat, especially in the waist area.
The first reason is the usage of antibiotics in food and medicines. Antibiotics save lives, but people today are using them even when there is no need.
Another reason is the increasing number of drugs that are given to animals which humans consume later. The animals are injected with various hormones, and with consumption of these animals, those hormones enter into our own organism. Weight gain is just one of the symptoms.
The third reason is the usage of chemicals and pesticides that affect the endocrine system. Many household chemicals, particularly those in plastic containers that we use disrupt the endocrine function. These chemicals are very similar by structure to estrogen and can interfere with the normal function of these hormones.
The fourth reason is the artificial sweeteners. Many times is proven that diet foods, various sweeteners, actually stimulate the appetite. They also increase the desire for carbohydrates and encourage fat accumulation and weight gain.
The fifth reason is fast food. About this reason we do not have much to write, everyone is already familiar about. What is worrying is the escalation of obese children who are particularly under the influence of the fast food industry.
