Abstract
Comment on : Obesity and loss of disease-free years owing to major non-communicable diseases: a multicohort study. [Lancet Public Health. 2018]
The large increase in obesity worldwide is a major public health crisis. Obesity has been associatedwith several non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancers, and is a major cause of premature death. According to WHO, at least 2·8 million deaths and more than 35 million (2·3%) global disability-adjusted life-years are linked to overweight or obesity. Furthermore, obesity is a major cause of osteoarthritis and chronic disabilities. Owing to the increase of obesity and population ageing, especially in low-income and middle-income countries, the obesity-related burden of disease will rise.
