Ever Pondered... How Destructive Obesity And Diabetes Can Be?
By Ashish Jain
This world is full of injustice. I paid the full air fare for
flying from New Delhi to New York. My weight is 70 kgs. The
gentleman sitting next to me, almost bursting out of the seat
belt, must be weighing about 200 kgs. He has also paid the same
amount. Is this not injustice? Why obese people are given this
All said in good humor! The obese people are to be pitied
rather than condemned. They know not what they are doing- how
much they are eating. To say it in clear cut terms obesity is
extending a direct invitation to diabetes. Not very long ago,
diabetes caught hold of the elderly and the aged. Now even the
children suffer from diabetes, not the rarest of the rare
cases, but quite a good percentage. It is increasing at a rapid
The reason is not far off to seek. The modern mothers think
that the easiest way to handle the children is to fulfill their
all demands. The chocolates, the pizzas, the salty chips, cold
drinks, the processed foods and what not!
The concept of right diet is not known to the children, but
even the mothers wish to pretend ignorance, even if they know.
Their placement of love for the children is wrong. Soon the
children look like balloons and one fine day, when the doctor
tells you that your kid has diabetes, you are shocked...How
that can be...?
Various studies reveal that over 20 % of the world population
is obese. You suffer, and you pass on this heritage to your
children. You spend the whole day sitting at the office, with
mental labor, without any physical labor and once you enter the
house, tired and exhausted, you refuse to go out of the drawing
room. Changing the channels, by push of the remote button is
only your physical exercise.
Why blame anybody when you are declared to be a diabetic
patient? Your diabetes is your own creation.
“Doing nothing is not an option” they say. “In 1989 a study
found that five per cent of children were classified as obese.
By 1998, the figure had almost doubled. The incidence of
obesity is also increasing with age; according to an English
survey in 1996, approximately 17 per cent of 15 year olds are
obese,” says Dr Penny Gibson, Consultant Paediatrician and
Adviser on childhood obesity for the Royal College of
Paediatrics and Child Health.
There is conclusive proof that obesity is one of the strongest
causes of diabetes. Unless something tangible steps are taken
all over the World, by premium Organizations like World Health
Organization, the day is not far off, when we shall have
diabetic families, from the child to the grandfather!
