The Obesity Pandemic
Dr. Linda Anegawa 
Hundreds of years ago, a portly belly was a sign of wealth. The royals ate and rank more than their fill while the serfs starved and toiled on the land. Today, not much has changed. Some of the wealthiest, most developed countries are plagued by weight gain and obesity, and the problem is quickly accelerating.

Pre-existing medication conditions were one of the biggest risk factors during the pandemic, but did you know that 69 percent of the U.S. population has at least one these risk factor? Their weight puts them at risk.

On this weeks’ podcast, Dr. LInda Anegawa shares her research and positive focus for a metabolically healthier future.
