Obesity and heart disorders
New Delhi, 22nd October 2016: Obesity and overweight have become major public health concerns today. An obese person is one whose body weight is significantly above his or her ideal healthy weight and which has negative impact on their health. Obesity is measured by the body mass index or BMI. The BMI cut offs that define obesity in Asian Indians are lower than those for the western population as they have more body fat. A person with a BMI of 25 or higher is considered obese, while a person who has a BMI in the range of 23.0 and 24.9 is considered overweight.
