The world today is obsessed with weight, or at least the world feels it. Everyone seeks ways to be in shape, to be skinny and to be healthy too without knowing that underweight is dangerous. True, overweight does lead to health risks; however, being underweight is as prone to health problems as being obese.
If you’re underweight, you could be damaging your health. Weighing too little can contribute to a weakened immune system, fragile bones and a lack of energy. Other major problems such as decreased muscle strength, low fertility, inflammatory bowel disease and even cancers can be caused by too low weight. These problems are not only leading many girls to serious health issues but boys too, are being victims.
It’s mockingly true that in deprived places, people are dying of malnutrition and starvation while in most of the cities the youth are famishing themselves to attain some idealized notion of beauty. Following the slim models in advertises and movies, our new generation is going ravenous to get the those figures which are in many cases edited.
In the name of dieting, people drag themselves to eating disorders and its consequences unknowingly. Myriad of problems like loss of hair, muscle weakness, joint pain, damage of heart, liver and kidneys, etc are the effects of Eating Disorders. Furthermore, diseases like Anorexia and Bulimia are seen in the patients of Eating Disorders.
