What is obesity?

Obesity is the condition of being excessively overweight. Overeating and lack of exercise are the main causes, though certain medical conditions and genetics often play a role as well. Gaining recent prevalence in child populations, obesity is a major contributing factor to why this generation will not outlive the preceding generation. Many cases can be attributed to extreme poverty, and not the choice of the individual. People who are obese become victims of hate crimes.
