The Epidemic of Obesity

The public health implications of this increasing prevalence of obesity are of tremendous concern to federal officials, public policy experts, lawmakers, and health professionals because of the associated staggering costs and the impaired quality of life. In addition to the numerous medical complications linked to obesity, including higher rates of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, gall bladder and liver disease, certain forms of cancer, and depression and other mental health disorders (Ma, Ko, & Chan, 2009), people who are obese are more susceptible to social disadvantage and psychological problems because of stereotyping, prejudice, discrimination, and stigmatization (Hill, 2009).

In people with disabilities, higher BMIs also present a greater risk of secondary conditions, defined as preventable medical, emotional, or social problems resulting directly or indirectly from an initial disabling condition (Turk, 2006). Although there are no empirical data on the cumulative health effects of being disabled and obese, one qualitative study from the United Kingdom noted that obese people with disabilities need a higher level of care, pay more for assistive devices, and experience greater perceived levels of prejudice than individuals in the general population (Pain & Wiles, 2006).
