Let’s Get Serious About Obesity, Part 6

by | Diabetes, For Men, For Women

We know that obesity is a serious medical disease among African American women.  It is recognized as an epidemic throughout the United States and can be prevented if the causes are recognized early and measures taken to prevent it.  Obesity is not connected to the African American heritage.

Common myths and untruths run amok in our community:

  1. Obesity is impossible to change.
  2. Daily beverage intake does not matter.
  3. Obesity is not a major health issue that deserves immediate attention.
  4. There is a family history of obesity so you are destined to be obese.
