Obesity: Lifestyle or Disease?

Obesity: Lifestyle or Disease? | Indiana Brown's Term 4 2013 | Scoop.it

Via Saching_tigs, gabrielle whitfield
Indiana Brown's insight:

Being one of the biggest issues in Australia and America obesity is a rising problem that people need to be aware of. This article debates whether its a lifestyle or and disease which would be interesting to readers of today.

Tessa Fergusson's curator insight, November 14, 2013 7:59 PM

This is a Discussion about whether obesity is a lifestyle or a disease. Different sorts of people catorgerise it as either one or the other, when in reality no one has the right answer. Docters and scientists say that the answer varies for each person. What Merriam-Webster suggests ineterests me, and it makes a good arguement. She says a disease is a 'condition of the living animal/plant, impairs normal functioning and as signs and symptons'. Obesity doesn't fit the dictionary's definition of a disease. Herndon (in the article) hoes on and gives good examples that have convinced me that obesity isn't a disease but a liefstyle of a person.

" this article tells us that different people think that obesity is a lifestyle and not a disease when what it is, is a lifestyle disease that you can maybe help" 

AbbeyHe's curator insight, November 16, 2013 6:12 PM

Basically this article is arguing whether obesity is a disease or not. The dictionary describes a disease is a part of the body impairs normal functioning and usually appears with symptoms. So some people argue that obesity is a state of people not a disease. Like light- skined people tend to have skin cancer but that doesn't mean they are diseased. 

 

This article presents a very interesting point as it argues obesity is not a disease. However, people have obesity do tend to have diabetes and all other diseases. So whether or not obesity is a disease, it does increase the chance of getting other diseases.

Breast cancer 'rising in under-40s'

Breast cancer 'rising in under-40s' | Indiana Brown's Term 4 2013 | Scoop.it

"Cases of breast cancer in women under 40 are rising across Europe, research suggests.

Experts say it is unclear whether this is due to improved diagnosis or new risk factors.

A study in Cancer Epidemiology found cases rose by about 1% a year between 1990 and 2008 in seven countries.

Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer among women globally, and the leading cause of cancer death.

Cancer in young women is rare - only about 5% of all breast cancers are in women under the age of 40.

Despite this, it is the leading cause of death in young adult women.

Researchers in France and Italy studied trends in breast cancer in women under 40 in Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland over an 18-year period.

They found that on average cases rose by about 1% a year in women under 40, with the greatest rise in women under 35.

It is unclear if this is due to a rise in risk factors or improving methods of diagnosis, they say.
