i think this is something we should all thinmk about .I read that overweight people have a tendency to develop hypertension easily.I think it will be necessary for us to check our weight so we can avoid the scourge of hypertension.

I WAS overweight mos of my life and believe me it feels so good to say WAS, being overweight doesn't just put your health at risk (high blood pressure, diabetes, respiratory problems,etc) but also you have to deal with depression and frustation. About 3 months ago I started to use a system called Slim Activ and it's been great. I feel so much better emotional, physical and mentally. If any of you want to learn more about it just call 1-800-516-3446. I've been overweight and I know what it feels like but never lose hope. Good luck!!!

if you think well about the topic you will discover that it seeks to look at ways to address the health risks involved if you are a good entrepreneur you can actually research into it and come up with a good e-book or something that will give useful hints which you can sell on your site and my question to you will now be "does this have a relationship with making money ?from the discussion and responses i have dicovered that people do have a problem with being overweight and will want to do something about it.your job will be to provide a solution which you can sell

Very responsible post indeed! I agree with you totally. Its very important to maintain a good height-weight ratio, that is the BMI (basal metabolic index). Its very important to check our weight in order to keep hypertension at bay. For this e need to have a balanced diet. Thanks.

Being overweight is really a bad thing. you don't just increase your risk of hypertension when you are overweight, you also expose yourself to other health hazards like diabetes and some forms of cancers. To stay healthy, you should watch your weight more closely. Eat healthy food and do some exercise.

you are very right and correct obesity or overweight is not just a ticket to hypertension but a lot of other health risks
