Obesity directly linked to diet

Obesity directly linked to diet

Skyrocketing obesity is a direct result of the popularity of burgers, cheese pizzas, and fried chicken served everywhere. Hundreds of scientific studies connect animal fat with heart disease, diabetes, and cancers of the lung, colon, rectum, breast, endometrium, and prostate. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to get abundant, top-quality protein without these disadvantages. A varied diet of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and legumes packs more than enough protein. And instead of being accompanied by cholesterol and loads of saturated fat, it comes with the nutrients that cloak your cells with protection against cancer.
