Being overweight


For various reasons, everyone is talking about being overweight. A contributory factor has been the marked increase in numbers of overweight people in recent years. There is also no other individual risk factor that has a greater negative influence on so many other risk factors than being overweight.
Being overweight is linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, certain types of cancer and other disease patterns. And finally, it has been proved that overweight children as a rule stay overweight as young people and as adults.

Various studies also indicate that the number of people who are overweight or obese (very overweight) has increased greatly in recent years - internationally as well as in Switzerland.
