– Being overweight does a
lot of things to the body. None of them are good. It increases body mass,
increases resistance to flow, increases blood pressure. Increased body mass, especially obesity would largely be centripetal, and would have high fat cell content. That causes insulin resistance, which we know causes blocked
arteries in the heart, increases cholesterol,
increases blood pressure again. Obesity is something that prevents people from doing regular exercise. That then, again,
compounds the same problem of having heart disease,
and not being able to get the blood pressure
and cholesterol controlled. There is no good news in being overweight.
