The graphs showing relative mortality by group of BMI's is quite misleading because the vertical axis does not start at zero. The relative risks are much exaggerated. Could the maker rescale them? If not, the section would be better off without them. −Woodstone (talk) 17:10, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
Obesity has affected about 93.3 million of adults in the United States in the years of 2015-2016, and since then the numbers have continued to rise. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 03:43, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
I recently heard (cannot disclose the source) that the definition of obesity is different for Indian population. They were suggesting that the cutoff is 25. I was not aware of this, nor I support it. I would like to know if it is true and if so, can it be changed here. Thanks. -- Abhijeet Safai (talk) 07:30, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
Protein to carbohydrate+fat ratio as cause of obesity
Excess food & inadequate physical activity are always the reason (CICO)
The article states repeatedly that excessive food & inadequate physical activity are the “primary” cause of obesity. It should be made clear that those factors are always the reason, for every person everywhere.
Asserting that obesity can be caused by “genetics” is misleading, since, due to the laws of physics, obesity occurs only when energy consumed exceeds energy expended. P linkola (talk) 03:28, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
