Not only food, emissions of greenhouse gases also increase obesity


There is a possibility of obesity due to irregular eating and eating habits. Almost everyone knows it. Now, in a new study, researchers have claimed that increasing greenhouse gas emissions also poses a risk of obesity. Researchers say that, in addition to the growing population of the world, increasing the average body size of people on Earth may challenge efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The study, published in the journal Obesity, shows that greenhouse gas emissions are 20% more responsible for obesity than normal people.

Fadon Magkos, a researcher at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, said, “Our analysis suggests that, in addition to the effects on morbidity, mortality and health care costs, obese management can also affect the environment.” According to researchers, obese people produce more carbon dioxide from oxidative metabolism (metabolism) than normal-weight individuals. In addition, more food and drinks are needed for the maintenance of the body of obese people, whose transport also increases the consumption of fossil fuels and emits additional carbon dioxide.

Global obesity is estimated to cause 700 MW of carbon dioxide emissions per year, which is about 1.6 per cent of all man-made emissions. Researchers say that if the body is to remain healthy and avoid the dangers of global warming, people need to be made aware of it.
