Obesity Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems.
Statistics of AnorexiaThe highest risk age group is between 14 to 18 years, although there are studies that extend the age from 12 to 25 years.It is estimated that anorexia nervosa affects between 0.5 to 3% of world population of adolescents, making it the third most common chronic disease among this age group. Within groups of adolescents who are dieting, it is estimated that only about 20% have actually overweight, the rest are interested in losing weight without even needing it.About 90% of adolescents who diet are women. An estimated 1 in 100 children / adolescents suffer from anorexia, while about 3% develop bulimia. If you perform a differential evaluation of cases of anorexia nervosa in men and women, the percentage would be 5% and 95% respectively. Although in recent years, the gender gap will shorten.Of all patients who receive treatment to combat anorexia, after 5 years, approximately 12% become chronic, increasing to 15% at 10 years.The death rate due to anorexia, is between 3 to 5%. The overvaluation of thinness and culture of perfection that characterizes the world today has an impact on the psyche of adolescents and children. Each day, increase the cases of girls under 12 with eating disorders, which must be taken in time to avoid future complications that can even lead to death.
