Obesity is linked to many diseases, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, various cancers, and an overall reduction in life expectancy. Obesity is defined as a condition where a person has a body mass index (BMI) that is greater than 30. On the other hand, being overweight is defined as having a BMI of more than 25!
