|In this new
century, news media are finally aware that America's major
health problem is obesity. Excess weight not only contributes to
almost every health risk, it can actually multiply the risk
factors, including those from tobacco. It has already been
reported that tobacco causes
more deaths than AIDS / HIV, maternal mortality, automobile accidents,
homicide and suicide combined, yet obesity makes
the risks even higher.
You don't have to be 300 pounds overweight for fat to be harmful. Being
"pleasingly plump" or even leaner can be enough to increase your
risks of various ailments, such as cancers, diabetes, heart
disease, memory loss, menopause, osteoporosis, PMS, stroke.
Just substituting margarine for butter is not enough, especially if the
spread is made with hydrogenated oils or "trans fatty acids".
Good fats, the "essential fatty acids" that the body can not make, can be
found in fish, nuts, soy and other foods. For
most fats, if you have none in your diet, your body will make what it needs.
** Diet with FACTS, not MYTHS. **
