There are many health risks of obesity. Obesity makes you weak and slows down your physiological functions. It can even lead to a very serious illness.
Various diseases that can be caused by obesity:
Congestive heart failure
This is a condition in which the individual’s heart is not capable of pumping enough blood to the different body organs. In turn, they cannot carry on with their normal physiological functions.
Some people also develop an enlarged heart which is usually caused by the thickening of the heart muscle and occurs due to the increased workload of the heart which further increases its size.

While college students stress over paying for an education, Baby Boomers and older senior citizens find that retirement income can be a major cause of stress.
Some medical symptoms are so obvious our brains go on automatic and we know what to do.
What do you do, however, when the symptoms are not so dramatic or obvious?

This is especially true for women whose symptoms differ from the symptoms of men and whose risk for certain diseases increases after menopause.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a federal issue and was signed by President Clinton in 1996. This Act ensures that individuals would be able to renew or obtain health insurance in the event of a job loss or change in jobs.
This guarantees portability across employment settings and would reduce and hopefully eliminate discrimination against those individuals with a preexisting medical condition. This legislation was expanded to include administrative simplification and healthcare abuse and fraud which for the most part, focused on issues with respect to privacy of patient’s health information.
