Obesity Causes Pain?
A survey of over a million people conducted by the Gallup Organization found a direct relationship between the amount that a person is overweight and the amount of pain they experience. The survey results indicate that people who are overweight experience more pain that those whose body mass index (BMI) is normal or low. People who are mildly obese experience even more pain with people who are severely obese experiencing the most pain.
These results were similar for both men and women. But the survey found that as overweight/obese people got older, the pain they experience increased even more.
Everyone experiences pain in their life at some time. Unfortunately for those who are overweight/obese, that pain can become a way of life.
