India is the third most obese nation in the world

Obesity is slowly becoming a big problem in India with the rise of numbers of obese people. With each passing year, the problem of obesity is only becoming worse. The alarming sign is that the increase in obesity is much higher among the teenagers. This is clear indicator that next generations of India are going to be obese. Already, India has become the third most obese nation in the world. Around twenty years back, it was quite hard to find obese teenagers; however, now we can commonly see them.

Why this is happening and what is wrong with us? The main reason for this increase in obesity is wrong life style adopted by the teenagers. Today's kids are busier indoor with the mobile or computer games and they eat food which is very high in fats. Due to work culture, nowadays both parents go to a job and thus leaving their kids free to choose junk food. To satisfy the taste buds, kids opt for junk food freely available in the market as compared to healthy food.

If we didn't do anything to address this problem then we are going to greatly suffer in the near future and it will not be a surprise if see India topping the list of obese nations. Obesity is not a single problem but it gives rise to many health problems like diabetics, high BP, and cancer. Therefore, we need to show people how bad the consequences of obesity are so that we can put some control on it before goes out of our hands.
