What causes obesity?
Obesity is not a problem of weak will or laziness. It is a disease that has developed into a worldwide epidemic. Globally, one in four people are obese, in the Czech Republic it is one in five.
Obesity is caused primarily by a bad diet and overeating. However, it is also influenced by various other factors including a lack of physical activity, a sedentary lifestyle, genetic factors that affect metabolism and the ability to burn fat, as well as eating habits in the family play and other hormonal and psychological factors.
