Factors that Contribute to Obesity
Not moving around, not eating healthily and, sometimes, hormones are some of the factors that can cause obesity, according to Dr. Jorge Rabaza, Chief of Surgery with South Miami Hospital. However, he adds the main problem is diet.
He also says there are a lot of diet products in the market. “They don't work. When they came out is when the obesity epidemic in the United States started to rise, because they're pushing foods that people are going to eat but they're maintaining their weight. They're actually not doing what they're supposed to do,” the doctor says.
