Obesity

 

Obesity means having too much body fat.  It presents a major health threat to any individual as obesity puts extra strain on every part of the body and causes additional risks to a person’s health.   Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in New York State and across the nation. While many epidemics can be defeated with a pill or a vaccine, obesity requires changes in behavior as well as access to affordable, nutritious foods and opportunities for physical activity.
