A Sad Irony

Scale PT Gym Blog

Isn’t it ironic that two of the world’s biggest health concerns and societal problems are obesity and hunger?  It is estimated that over one billion people on our planet are undernourished. In contrast, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), well over one billion are also overweight. Over 300 million of those are listed as obese. That means nearly one third of the world’s population is either starving or overfed!

Worldwide over 6 million people die annually from starvation. Just in America, nearly 400,000 die annually from obesity related diseases and spend over $36 billion in medical costs trying to cure our gluttonous, sedentary woes.

Unfortunately we can’t save the world, but we do have control to not add to the grim statistics. So put down the doughnut and start moving!
