The World Health Organization, along with numerous medical and scientific societies, recognize that obesity is a chronic disease. Obesity is progressive in nature and is the result of a mix of environmental and genetic factors. No longer considered a cosmetic issue caused by overeating and lack of self-control, obesity is a health issue and due to its progressive nature, obesity requires life-long treatment, control and education.
