In a large, collaborative, international study led by researchers from the Harvard T. Chan School of Public Health and the University of Cambridge, researchers found that overweight or obese people have a higher risk of premature death, and that the risk increases with additional weight gain. From this data we can conclude that longevity may be among the greatest benefits of correcting obesity.
However, reducing the risk of an early demise is not the only benefit of correcting this serious, chronic condition. For individuals with obesity, significant weight loss can greatly improve overall health and quality of life.
If you are struggling with obesity, your best hope for the future is to consult with a knowledgeable physician or bariatric surgeon in NJ to determine the best corrective treatment for you.
