Obesity costs the Canadian healthcare system billions, and it’s also bad for your health.
In fact, someone who is 40 per cent overweight is twice as likely to die prematurely. This is because obesity has been linked to medical conditions including:
- Heart disease and stroke
- High blood pressure
- Gallbladder disease and gallstones
- Gout and osteoarthritis
- Sleep apnea
