In recent years, with the improvement of people’s living standards and dietary structure changes, obesity has become a global “epidemic”. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are nearly 2 billion overweight or obese adults in the world. According to the State Council’s “Report on Nutrition and Chronic Diseases in the United States” released in 2020, the rate of overweight or obesity among American adults has exceeded 50%, and more than 16% are obese. 20% of children and adolescents between the ages of 6 and 17 are overweight or obese, and 10% of children under the age of 6. At present, the United States has become the country with the largest number of obese and overweight people in the world.

Obesity not only affects appearance and daily life but also easily causes many diseases. Numerous epidemiological studies have shown that obese people have a much higher risk of developing chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers than others. Public Health England reports that people who are overweight or obese have a higher risk of serious illness or death due to infection with the new coronavirus. Obesity has become a major public health threat.

To call further attention to obesity and share a healthy life, the World Obesity Alliance has designated March 4 each year as World Obesity Day, aiming to lead and drive global efforts to reduce, prevent and treat obesity together.

The causes of obesity are complex, and there is an urgent need for social care

According to the interpretation of the World Obesity Alliance, the causes of obesity are diverse, involving biology, genetics, diet and exercise, physical quality, lifestyle, mental health, business behavior, social environment, and other factors, covering all aspects of life. As the World Obesity Alliance cautions: do not attribute obesity to the individual, because obesity is usually driven by factors beyond human control.

The Blue Book on Obesity Prevention and Control in the United States, published by the American Nutrition Society in 2017, also points out that the causes of obesity include not only diet, physical activity, and psychological factors, but are also influenced by environmental factors at the same time. From small family life concepts and eating styles to large regional food choices, eating behavior, and living habits, all factors will have an impact on the degree of obesity of individuals.

It is for this reason that the World Obesity Alliance has set the theme of World Obesity Day 2021 as “Every Body Needs Everybody”, emphasizing that only through the common understanding, support, and protection of everyone can we truly reduce the problem of obesity on a global scale and help everyone who is suffering physically and mentally from obesity. The “Every Body Needs Everybody” emphasizes that only through the common understanding, support, and protection of everyone can we truly reduce the problem of obesity worldwide and help everyone who suffers from obesity. Obese people need more social care, and all sectors of society should work together to create a good environment to help people embrace a more active and healthy lifestyle.
