What Is Obesity?

Obesity is a disease in which excess fat has accumulated to such an extent that it may have adverse effects on health, reducing life expectancy and / or increased health problems. Body Mass Index (BMI), the measure that compares weight and height are defined as persons who are overweight (pre-obese) if their BMI is between 25 kg/m2 and 30 kg/m2 and obese is higher when than 30 kg/m2.

Obesity increases the risk of several diseases, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breathing problems during sleep, some cancers and osteoarthritis. Obesity is most often caused by a combination of excessive calorie food, lack of physical activity, and genetic predisposition, although some cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, drugs or psychiatric illness. The evidence to support the idea that some obese people eat less, but the weight gain due to a slow metabolism is limited in obese people spend more energy on average than their counterparts due to the fine energy to maintain body weight.

Dieting and exercise are the mainstays of treatment of obesity. In addition, it is important to improve the quality of the diet by reducing consumption of energy-rich foods such as those high in fat and sugar and increasing fiber intake. In addition, or in case of failure, anti-obesity drug taken to reduce appetite and inhibit fat absorption. In severe cases, surgery is performed or a gastric balloon is capable of reducing the volume of the stomach and / or length of the intestine, leading to early satiety and decreased ability to absorb nutrients from food.

Obesity is a preventable cause of death worldwide, with increasing prevalence in adults and children, and authorities consider it as one of the most serious public health in the 21st century. Obesity is stigmatized in much of the modern world (especially in the western world), although it was widely perceived as a symbol of wealth and fertility at other times in history, and remains in some parts of the world.

What If the Reactors in Japan Are Not Controlled?

The companies are in full swing to cool reactors in the affected seawater Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. Japanese military helicopters to dump loads of sea water over the stricken nuclear power plant on Thursday to try to cool dangerously overheated fuel rods of uranium that may be about to spew more radiation into the atmosphere.

Residents within 30 kilometers (19 miles) were asked to evacuate. About 70,000 people were evacuated in the networks of 20 km around Fukushima Daiichi, and another 140,000 living within a radius of 20 to 30 km ordered to stay indoors. The CH-47 Chinooks were deployed to stop the No. 3 reactor in an attempt to cool an overheated pool of spent fuel rods and to prevent the release of dangerous radioactive steam. Helicopters flying at 300 feet, are dumping loads of water in the reactor, although a significant amount of non-target The nuclear reactors No. 1 and No. 3 and stabilized radiation readings at the main entrance of the school have declined to a level that is "dangerous to the human body," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano has said this afternoon. The ministry said it planned to release at least 12 more charges in 40 minutes, each crew can remain in the area before seeing a limited radiation. The aim of the operation is part of the reactor cooling and to rebuild a pool which contains the spent fuel rods. Although TEPCO was able to take accurate measurements, the pool is thought to be almost empty of water, increasing the risk that the fuel rods would overheat and melt.
Previously, Gregory Jackzo president of nuclear weapons the United States Regulatory Commission told the congressional hearing in Washington that a storage pool in the second reactor had lost all its water and was in danger of spewing more radioactive material. "We fear that the water level was the No. 4 reactor at the bottom," said Kuroda Hikaru, TEPCO officials. But, he added, "Since I can not come close to it, the only way to visually check the situation from afar.
At noon, police Thursday was ready to spurt out of the reactor No. 3 of 11 trucks with water cannon as the focus of the past crisis of overheating of the reactors for the situation potentially more dangerous to the storage pools. The roofs of No. 3 and No. 4 reactors was blown by the explosion of hydrogen earlier this week, depriving them of a last line of defense against potentially harmful radiation leaks.
In the worst case, overheating of the fuel rods could be heated to the point where they begin to melt, releasing large amounts of radioactive substances. TEPCO said it has tried to open a temporary power line installation, 150 km north of Tokyo, which would allow it to pump water directly from storage tanks and reactor core.
Nuclear Safety Agency of Japan said he hoped power would be partially operational on the afternoon of Thursday. "When you create a temporary power supply we are able to pump sea water into the reactor TEPCO spokesman 'said." We believe that the activity will help to cool the fuel tank, "Defense Minister Toshimi Kitazawa says." Ideally we want to repeat the exercise as many times as possible, but we must also consider the health risks for our troops.
Each helicopter can carry 7.5 tons of water at a time, but the tanks each of 2000 tons, an expert said the public broadcaster NHK. But he added: "It 's possible as long as the sticks are completely under water This means that a pool of storage would be about one third of all dousing But it must be repeated
About 1.3 million homes were without power in Japan and 1.4 million had no running water, according to a government report on the earthquake. More than 2,000 people have died in the earthquake and tsunami struck the northeastern part of Japan, Deputy Secretary of Public Relations Office Noriyuki Shikata said.
I do not know if there are no words to describe the level of destruction recorded in these images from Japan. We give them the easy way we can, and, above all, do not forget to pray for Japan on a daily basis. We pray to the highest potential to wipe their tears and give them all the blessing and the help they need.
