Obesity Inflames Fat Cells Causing Development of Chronic Disease

THAT ALL THIS MEDICAL EVIDENCE SHOULD BE SELF-EVIDENT COMES AS NO SURPRISE…THE SURPRISE IS THAT PEOPLE, YES OLD GUYS OVER 40, REALLY DON’T CARE OR DON’T FEEL THAT ESTABLISHING A DIETARY ROUTINE AND SIMPLE CORE ISOMETRIC EXERCISES IS NECESSARY TO “THEIR” LIVES…EAT LESS, EAT WELL, EAT EVERY THREE HOURS AND KEEP THE TOTAL CALORIES UNDER 2000 PER DAY…THESE EXCERPTS ARE FROM “MEDHEADLINES.COM”….

“The fat tissue itself was more inflamed in the obese fat samples than in the lean fat samples, with a significant degree of stress observed in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER).”

“Using the same simple description of sickness as it applies to the body as a whole – that when it doesn’t work correctly, it’s sick – researchers at Temple University School of Medicine conclude the fat cells of patients suffering from obesity are, by that definition, sicker than a lean person’s fat cells.  They just don’t quite work right

A part of every cell, ER helps the cell produce proteins and it determines how those proteins are folded.  Boden’s team identified evidence of stress in the ER of fat cells taken from obese people that affects the production and folding of certain proteins in a way that leads, ultimately, to insulin resistance.  Insulin resistance is an underlying condition thought to play a key role in the development of obesity-related medical diagnoses and it contributes to the progression of these medical conditions as well.

Height and weight are frequently addressed as body mass index (BMI), a measurement the National Institutes of Health (NIH) uses as standard of health.  The larger a person is, the higher his or her BMI.  When BMI climbs higher than 25, each point in increased BMI value indicates an increase of 25% for the risk of developing diabetes and a 10% increase in the risk of developing heart disease.”
