Obesity is an ongoing health concern, affecting around 13% of people worldwide. Unless further government action is taken, the global obesity rate will rise another 4% by 2025, according to a new report from the World Obesity Federation.

..

What is more, the report - released in line with the first World Obesity Day - reveals that 177 million adults across the globe will be severely obese and in need of treatment in the next 10 years unless more is done to combat the problem.

..

Overweight and obesity can raise the risk for a number of health problems, including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer. A recent study reported on by Medical News Today also links overweight and obesity to earlier onset of Alzheimer's disease.

..

Since 1980, the prevalence of obesity has more than doubled worldwide. This increase has been largely attributed to a rise in consumption of foods high in fat, an increase in sugary drink intake and lack of physical activity.

..

Fast food advertising, a rise in sedentary working environments and increased numbers of people residing in urban environments have also been cited as contributors to the obesity epidemic.

..

In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) created the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases 2013-2020, which aims to encourage governments across the globe to bring rates of overweight and obesity to 2010 levels by the year 2025.

..

However, Dr. Tim Lobstein, director of policy at the World Obesity Federation, notes that few governments have taken action so far, despite being aware of what needs to be done.
