A few decades ago,obesity was a really uncommon problem. Kids used to play outside for hours as soon as school was over, their parents used to walk and bike to most places and parks were full of people most of the time. Nowadays, everything in our enviroment is constantly changing and we had adapted our livestyle to those changes. And while some of those changes are extremely positives, but some other aren't.
In Costa Rica, obesity has increased from 6,3% of populaton in 1975 to 23,7% in 2014. Currently most of the population is overweight. Diabetes, highblood pressure, heart, kidney and liver problems are seen as the norm. Young adults are getting these health problems earlier. And while these problems and how to avoid them is well known for the population, their lack of concern and interest don't allow them to do the required changes to their lifestyle.
We life in a time where technology advances way faster making everything easier to do. Chores that used to take several hours, now can be done within a few minutes with no effort using the right appliance. Which means we have more free time to expend in a way we believe is the best. Unfortunately if we use all our free time in entretainment, hobbies and even more work, but not for exercise; we are creating a sedentary lifestyle, which it's going to charge us an big bill, one that we can't pay . The only way to defeat obesity is if each of us chooses to.
