Question and answer
Q: what is one factor that has contributed to the global increase in obesity? Describe this factor in detail and explain why the factor puts individuals at risk for becoming obese.
A: Lack of physical activity : The remote control, video games, the automobile, television, and to some extent the computer are all part of the environment which discourage people from being physically active. [ Some people live in neighborhoods where they can?t go outside because walking or running is too dangerous, and they don?t have money to join health clubs. Plus, given that we?re becoming
fatter as a society, it becomes less appealing to exercise. Our bodies need calories for daily functions such as breathing, digestion, and daily activities. Weight gain occurs when calories consumed exceed this need. Physical activity plays a key role in energy balance because it uses up calories consumed. ]
