The body system impacted most by extra bodyweight.

Extra body weight places unwarranted stress on the heart and the circulatory system. To account for large body mass, the heart must pump blood harder than for a person of normal body weight. An extra pound of fat in the body can force the development of a mile’s length of blood vessels. The strain this causes on the heart makes it extremely vulnerable. As a result of these issues, overweight people are subject to a variety of heart related diseases.
