The strain theory says these emotions usually lead to crime and deviance, I think according to this topic the deviance would be an obese person to stop caring about their health. I say that because some people see themselves as fat and that’s it and there is nothing they can do about. So they just let their health get worse believing there isn’t anything that can be done. That is deviant because there is plenty that can be done about that situation. Obesity can be a difficult battle to fight but it can be defeated.
Mary Lowth says a solution to obesity would include “putting food out of sight, diet, exercise and skipping de... ... middle of paper ... ...he lives of employers (Reinert, 2012). Conclusion Obesity is a steadily growing problem for Americans, especially for American children. Fast food indirectly affects the eating habits and obesity of people in the United States. There are several reasons of increasing popularity of fast food but it is a fact that fast food is not very healthy and balanced food. By avoiding such food one can easily get enough energy to exercise and cut the high-density foods.
Fast food should stop being blamed for a vast amount of obesity in the U.S. Fast food is one of the influences of obesity, but there is a point where the person can take control of their eating habits themselves and stop blaming other culprits. The definition of “Obesity is a condition characterized by the excessive accumulation and storage of fat in the body.”(Obesity - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary) Obesity is too commonly seen here in the states and many Americans are experiencing health deficiencies and diseases that come with it. "Two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese" (Flegal et al., 2012). “Obesity puts stress on every part of your body and increases your risk of developing major health problems.” (“What Are the Consequences of Not Eating Healthy?") Today, in cities the hustle and bustle of everyday life gets in the way of people's diets.
There is a book called Understanding Obesity that says that the reason we need to be concerned is that excess weight is the cause of more illness than virtually any other medical condition. So this means that Obesity is a massive problem that affects the health of people. According to a web page Obesity causes 30,000 deaths a year, this is a big number for death and is literary caused because of the food. Obesity is a huge problem in the United States, Americans are grossly overweight, not only adults but also children. There are many causes for this, for example genetics, lack of exercise and food calories; obesity negatively affects our body in many ways causing health problems, people can reduce obesity by weight-loss surgery.
Millions of people die each year from being overweight. It is said that in 2015 more than 700 million people will be obese. (NCD Alliance) What most people don’t realize is that if you are obese as a child, you have a higher chance of premature death and disability in adulthood. In an article called “The Fast Food and Obesity Link: Consumption Patterns and Severity of Obesity” researchers talk about the recent studies revolving around obesity and how it affect us. Recent studies have shown that these increases in extreme obesity rates are not specific to a certain population, but are rather an integral part of the weight distribution in the USA, and the more extreme the obesity, the higher the rate of growth .
Moreover, this obscures several health policy debates. I believe that a small amount of obese individuals are hereditarily preset to become obese and most likely will come to be overweight regardless even if they followed a strict diet plan. Some are hereditarily susceptible to obesity in that they must be vigilant about their nutrition, which may evade obesity. Furthermore, many have no inherited traits contributing to obesity, but through careless eating habits become obese. Radley Balko, a senior editor at Reason, states, “We’re becoming less responsible for our own health, and more responsible for everyone else’s” (396).
Obesity Some researchers claim that more than 300,000 Americans are dying due to obesity every year and the number is rising annually. That is a huge number and it can be fixed a number of ways but some individuals are lazy some can’t lose the weight because of medical reason. Obesity causes disease from diabetes to heart disease and in some cases death. Obesity in children is growing problems to children who are obese have a higher chance to get diabetes or heart failure. The school environment is one of several settings that can influence children’s food choices and eating habits.
In our society obesity has become a primary link to heart diseases and other preventable lifestyle illnesses that can lead to early death. Why is our society overweight, and why is it our attempts to correct the issue have yet to yield positive results? Without the proper understanding that obesity is a social disease, our society will continue to seek quick fixes for obesity and never address the ongoing issue at it's core. Obesity is a social disease. Like the phrase, “you are what you eat”, it is common to hear “show me who your friends are and I will show you who you are”.
As a market failure, the obesity epidemic in America is costing the federal government billions of dollars annually. While most obesity prevention programs aim toward changing the rate of children who become obese, many fail, causing an inefficient allocation of government resources. Much of what 's already been done has proven to barely be a speed bump in the progression that is the obesity epidemic. Several solutions which can be explored to effective halt this progression. The taxation of certain unhealthy foods, government benefits and subsidies for organic produce farmers, and passing new legislation to regulate the amount of calories a fast food restaurant is allowed to serve you, just to name a few.
All in all, obesity and over weight account for nearly one of every 10 American deaths, and they also drain our society of $223 billion a year (Obesity in America, 5). Obesity is something that is present and dangerous, but people seem to overlook it. There are many factors that can lead to obesity. If a pregnant woman has high intake of insulin, or gains excessive weight while pregnant it can cause a child to be born larger than their gestational age, which in the long run cause of obesity. Also, over feeding babies can cause them to develop early onset of obesity.
