TRACK 1: Obesity

Obesity means having excess body fat. It is different from being overweight, which means weighing too much. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat & body water. Both terms mean that a person's weight is greater than what's considered healthy for his or her height. Obesity is a complex disorder involving an excessive amount of body fat. Obesity is not just improving concern. It increases the risk of diseases and health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. Being obese likely to have health problems related to weight. Even discreet weight loss can improve or prevent the health problems associated with obesity. Increased physical activity and behaviour changes can help you lose weight. Prescription medicine and weight-loss surgery are additional options for treating obesity.

TRACK 2: Obesity and Cardiovascular diseases

Obesity is a prevalent metabolic disorder affecting on all over the world population. Obesity has been directly correlation with the various types of heart diseases. Such as Hypertension, Hyperlipidemia, Diabetes Type 2, Sleep Apnea, Metabolic Syndrome. Any time someone has an elevated weight, the person at risk with these cardiovascular diseases.  This condition is commonly known as high blood pressure. Adipose tissues are located very close to vessels with the highest permeability, the lowest hydrostatic pressure, and the shortest distance for transport of molecules to and from the adipocytes. Obesity can leads to coronary heart disease and congestive heart failure. BMI is to define obesity and BMI <21 may be associated with the protection from coronary heart disease mortality. BMI near 30 may still not congestive heart failure. a BMI >23 but <25 had a 50% increase in risk of nonfatal or fatal coronary heart disease, and men aged 40 to 65 years with a BMI >25 but <29 had a 72% increased risk.

TRACK 3: Obesity and Diabetes

Obesity and diabetes are reciprocal. Equal to the Centre for Disease Control, of the people who are diagnosed with type II diabetes, between 80-90% are also diagnosed as obese. Every three seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes. Type II diabetes is a for life (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood and the cells reject the insulin. Type II diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Weight gain is common in people who share insulin to treat diabetes. That’s because the more reject we use to maintain our blood glucose level, the major sugar is absorbed into our cells, rather than eliminated by our body. The absorbed glucose is stored as fat, which makes us gain weight.

TRACK 4: Obesity and Cancer

Being overweight or obese is a risk factor for particular types of cancer. Although a higher weight may not necessarily make cancer, maintaining a healthy weight is thought to be associated with a lower risk of many chronic diseases. Many resources are applicable to help you maintain a healthy weight, including doctors and dieticians. More than two-thirds of American people are overweight or obese (substantially or extremely overweight). When a person is overweight or obese, it process that they have too much body fat in relation to lean body tissue, such as muscle. Many factors cause people to turn into overweight or obese, including genetic, hormonal, environmental, emotional, and cultural factors. People who are overweight /obese have a higher risk of many serious health conditions, including type II diabetes, high blood pressure & heart disease. Being overweight or obese is also associated with an increased risk of cancer.

The relationship among obesity and breast cancer may be affected by the stage of life in which a women's health weight & becomes obese. Epidemiologists are gravely working to address this question. Weight gain during adult life, most often since about age 18 to between the ages of 50 and 60, has been consistently associated with risk of breast cancer after menopause.

Obesity has been consistently associated with renal cell cancer, which is the most common form of kidney cancer, in twain men and women. The mechanisms by which obesity may increase renal cell cancer risk are not well agreed. High blood pressure is a known risk factor for renal cell cancer, but the relationship between obesity and cancer is independent of blood pressure status. High levels of insulin may play a role in the development of the disease.

TRACK 5: Obesity and Endocrinal disorders

Obesity is increasing health concern as it is highly associated with various endocrine abnormalities and characterized by hormonal imbalance and/or resistance. Weight reduction generally normalizes these endocrine alterations, implicating obesity as a straight cause. Endocrine and metabolic diseases are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the global in particular the current epidemic of obesity is leading to early death round diabetes, cardiovascular disease and an increased incidence of cancer.

Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate developments in our body. They are one of the factors causing obesity. The hormones lepton and insulin, sex hormones and growth hormone influence our appetite, metabolism (the regard at which our body burns for energy), and body fat distribution. People who are obese have levels of these hormones that encourage anomalous metabolism and the accumulation of body fat.

TRACK 6: Effects of Obesity on Women’s Health and Pregnancy

Obesity impacts the health of women in many ways. Being overweight or obese increases the relative risk of diabetes and coronary artery disease in women.

  • Gestational diabetes: Women who are obese are more likely to have diabetes that develops during pregnancy than are women who have a normal weight.
  • Preeclampsia and obesity: Women who are obesity are at increased risk of developing a pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to other organ system, often the kidneys (preeclampsia).
  • Pregnancy loss: Obesity increases the risk of miscarriage during pregnancy and effects the child growth.

Obese women are at greater risk of a delay in lactation, which may be related to decreased rates of breastfeeding initiation. One study found that obesity women had lower prolactin responses to suckling in the first week compared with normal-weight women. There is also evidence that excess body fat may impair mammary gland development before conception and during pregnancy with hormonal and metabolic effects.

Maternal obesity is also associated with a shortened duration of breastfeeding. A Danish study of nearly 38,000 women observed that the greater the pregnant BMI, the earlier the termination of breast Diseases. There is no data looking at future breastfeeding rates by subsequent pregnancies after weight loss.

TRACK 7: Childhood Obesity- Treatment and Prevention

Childhood Obesity prevention strategies and policies have been proposed to counter obesity, and some of those proposed policies focus on altering the food system to control food consumption habits and thus obesity and nutrition by changing the choices of available to consumers or by changing the incentives to choose. To reverse the obesity epidemic, places and practices take to support healthy eating & active living. The recommended strategies to prevent obesity are early care and research strategies, School health guidelines to promote healthy eating, physical activity and school-based childhood obese prevention strategies school lunch programs, after-school programs.

Childhood obesity has doubled in children in the past 30 years. The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States were obesity increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 18% in 2012. In 2012, more than one-third of children and adolescents were obesity. Childhood obesity is strongly associated with risk factors for cardiovascular disorders, type 2 diabetes, orthopaedic problems, mental disease, underachievement in school and lower self-esteem.

TRACK 8: Obesity in Teens and Adolescents

Obesity is an increased risk of morbidity and mortality as well as reduced life expectancy. The last two decades of the previous century have witnessed dramatic increase in health care costs due to obesity and related issues among children and adolescents. Young people today are living large. Obesity ratio has been doubled since 1980 among children and has tripled for adolescents. In the past 20 years, the proportion of adolescents aged 12 to 19 who are obese increased from 5 % to 18 %. Many researchers have found that obesity youth are at greater risk for emotional distress than their non-overweight peers. Overweight teenagers have fewer friends, are more likely to be socially isolated, and suffer higher rates of depression than young people of normal weight.

TRACK 9: Genetics of Obesity

Obesity is the result of an interchange between behavior, environment, and genetic factors. Studies have identified development in several genes that may contribute to obesity gain and body fat distribution; although, only in a few cases are genes the primary cause of obesity. Polymorphisms in various genes controlling appetite and metabolism predispose to obese under certain dietary conditions. The percentage of obesity that can be attributed to genetics varies widely, depending on the population survey from 6% to 85%.  As of 2006, more than 41 sites on the human genome have been linked to the growth of obesity when a favorable environment is present. The involvement of genetic factors in the development of obesity is estimated to be 40–70%. Some of the obesogenic or leptogenic genes may influence obese individual’s response to weight loss or weight management.

TRACK 10: Bariatric Surgery

Obese children have health problems that used to be seen only in adults. When these problems begin in childhood, they commonly become worse in adulthood. A child who is overweight or obese is also more likely to have problems such as low self-esteem, Poor grades in school, desolation. The prevalence of morbid obesity has risen sharply in recent years, even among pediatric patients.

Currently, bariatric surgery may be choice for adults with severe obesity. Body mass index (BMI), a measure of height in relation to weight is used to define levels of obese. Clinically severe obesity is a BMI > 40 or a BMI > 35 with a serious health issue linked to obesity. Such health problems could be type 2 diabetes, heart disease or severe sleep apnea.

TRACK 11: Physical Activity and Yoga

Yoga is an activity that upgrade muscles strength and flexibility while centering your thoughts and relaxing you. The action began in India more than 5,000 years. The most popular types of yoga in the U.S. are Hatha, Iyengar, Kundalini and Ashtanga. Yoga is beneficial for stress depletion, reducing neck pain, lowering high blood pressure, and reducing asthma symptoms.

Little is known about the metabolic and heart rate reaction to a typical hatha yoga meeting. The purposes of this research

1) To determine whether a typical yoga practice used various postures meets the present recommendations for levels of physical activity required to better and maintain health and cardiovascular fitness.

2) To direct the reliability of metabolic costs of yoga across sessions.

3) To collate the metabolic costs of yoga practice to those of treadmill walking.

Overweight people should lose obesity gradually. For safe and healthy weight loss, try not to exceed a rate of two pounds per week. Sometimes, people with major health problems associated with obesity may have legitimate reasons for losing weight quickly. If so, a physician's supervision is required. Successful weight loss and weight management should mark all of these factors. And that's the reason to ignore products and Weight Management programs that promise quick and easy results, or that promise permanent effect without permanent changes in your lifestyle. Any ad that says you can lose obese without lowering the calories you take in and increasing your physical activity is selling fantasy and false hope. In fact, some people would call it fraud. Further the use of some products may not be safe.

TRACK 12: Advanced treatments for Obesity

Obesity advanced treatments is to stay at a healthy weight. Health professionals like dietitian, behavior counsellor or an obesity specialist to help understand and make changes in eating & activity habits. All obesity programs require changes in Eating Disorders and increased physical activity. The therapy methods that are right depend on level of obesity, overall health and willingness of person to participate in weight loss plans.

Treatment for obesity will be most prosperous if you create a long-term plan with your doctor. A reasonable goal might be to begin active life style changes by grow physical activity and eating healthy foods. Your initial goal should be to better your health, not to achieve an ideal weight.

TRACK 13: Dietary and Lifestyle changes

Lifestyle factors related to obesity, eating behavior, and physical activity play a major role in the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes. In recent years, there has been progress in the development of behavioral strategies to modify these lifestyle behaviors. Further research, however, is clearly needed, because the rates of obesity in our country are escalating, and changing behavior for the long term has proven to be very difficult. This review article, which grew out of a National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases conference on behavioral science research in diabetes, identifies four key topics related to obesity and physical activity that should be given high priority in future research efforts

1) Environmental factors related to obesity, eating, and physical activity.

2) Adoption and maintenance of healthful eating, physical activity, and weight.

3) Etiology of eating and physical activity.

4) Multiple behavior changes.

TRACK 14: Weight loss Medications

Anti-Obesity Medication or weight loss drugs are all Pharmacology agents that reduce or control weight. The drugs prescribed for obese individuals mainly work by either changing an individual’s appetite or by the absorption of extra calories in the body. Weight loss in individuals who are obese may reduce health risks. Studies have found that weight loss with some medication improves blood pressure, blood cholesterol, triglycerides and insulin resistance. Some research suggests that long-term use of weight-loss medications may help individuals keep off the lost weight.

Medical weight loss is not surgery or diet pills. It is weight management based on medical scientific principles that target the root causes of obesity and weight gain to achieve and sustain a healthy weight in the long-term under the care of a medical provider. The tools that medical weight loss providers use to manage weight are very different from what we find with commercial programs. First, medical weight loss providers use metabolism and body composition (mainly fat percentage) as true indicators of weight loss progress. Second, they can prescribe safe, low-calorie diets that are specifically designed to lose weight while breaking the cycle of food addiction. They prescribe an appetite suppressant.  Finally, they have the ability to view weight loss and maintenance within the context of total health profile.

TRACK 15: Current Research on Obesity

The goal of the Centre for Obesity Research is to understand the pathophysiology of obesity and type 2 diabetes in order to identify new preventive and therapeutic strategies. The Centre is internationally renowned for leading the field of gut hormone research. On-going research programmes combine basic science with studies in healthy human volunteers and obese and type 2 diabetic patients. Human studies are underpinned by detailed phenotyping including gut hormone profiling and functional brain imaging coupled with genetics, with the aim of developing personalised therapeutic strategies.

Obesity is a major public health concern worldwide. The increasing prevalence of obesity in all ages, especially children and adolescents, has gained global attention and it is widely known that obesity increases the risk of many chronic conditions and illnesses, such as Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) and cardiovascular disease. Community-based programs are one potentially feasible approach that can assist individuals, families, and communities in developing healthy behaviors that promote and maintain weight loss. This review reports on nine worldwide current studies on the effectiveness of community-based programs in diverse populations targeting obesity. The purpose of this review is to examine evidenced-based interventions that can assist in the development of standard practices in the battle against obesity.

In US, the adult obesity (symposiums) rate for 2014 is 27.7 %, according to new Gallup-Healthways data which was 27.1% in the year 2013, highest annual rate ever measured by the polling organization. So far this year, only 35 % are considered "normal weight." Obesity which was recently recognized as a disease by the American Medical Association disproportionately affects certain demographic groups. According to it black adults still have the highest obesity rate of any group (35.5 %), while young adults between ages 18 and 29 have the lowest (17.0 %). The obesity rate was highest in the South (29.2 %), followed by the Midwest (28.6 %), while in the eastern United States, 25.6 % of adults are obese, and in the West, 24.1 % are obese. Individuals with BMI values of 30 or above are considered "obese." A BMI of 25 to 29.9 lands someone in the "overweight" category. People with a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 are classified as "normal weight," while those with a score of 18.4 or less are considered "underweight." The global weight loss/obesity management market was worth $265 billion in the year 2012 and is expected to reach $361 billion by 2017.

Importance and Scope

The conference program covers a wide range of topics related to obesity while focusing on Health Problems. This obesity congress offers key insights into cutting-edge applications from global experts related to Obesity and Weight Management.

Obesity is best described as a condition in which extra body fat has accumulated to such an extent that a person’s health may be adversely affected.

The health effects of being overweight or obesity

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Breathing problems
  • Arthritis
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Some kinds of cancer

Why Toronto?

There is rise in the number of deaths due to obesity-related diseases in Toronto than in rest of the Canada. There are major advancements in researches in the field of obesity in Toronto. There is also increase in the compound annual growth rate of obesity market. Based on the above mentioned reasons, obesity 2016 was decided to be held in Toronto, Canada.

A 2004 study called the Canadian Community Health Survey, found 29% of Canadians 18 and older were obese and 41% more were overweight (as determined by BMI). In children and adolescents, 8% were obese and 18% overweight. Rate of obesity varied significantly between the provinces from an obesity rate of 19% in British Columbia to a rate’s 34% in Newfoundland & Labrador.

In 2004, the prevalence of obesity in the three most populated provinces, Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec matched those of about thirty US states, at a level between 20% and 25%. The study found people that live in cities had significantly lower obesity rates in Nova Scotia, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia. In Quebec the relation approached significance (p=0.08), while in Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick & Saskatchewan the rate of obesity did not vary significantly between CMA and rural areas. Obesity in such populated areas often attack on young adults, ages ranging from 16 - 21. Studies shows that an single who's going through extensive learning often binges on food to help release stress. People dealing with stress generally find eating as method to help ease or cope with their problems leading to obese.

A 2005 report released by the Canada government's Economics Division reported that in 2004 approximately 6.8 million Canada adults aged 20 to 64 were overweight and an additional 4.5 million were obesity. Roughly speaking an adult male is considered overweight when his body weight exceeds the maximum over weight for his height and obesity when his body weight is 20% or more over this weight. A Similar guideline holds true for women but at a threshold of 25% rather than 20%. Dramatic growth in overweight and obesity among Canadians over the past 30 years have been deemed to constitute an epidemic.

Market Value of Obesity in World

Obesity is one of biggest public health issues in all countries around the world.  In 2006, the number of overweight people in the world over took the number of malnourished underweight people for the first time. Since 1980 obesity rate have doubled or tripled in many OECD countries. Today 50 % or more of the population is overweight in almost half of OECD countries.  The chart below shows the past and forecasted weight incidences for selected OECD countries.

While the U.S has long topped world obesity rankings a high incidence of overweight and obese people has increasingly become a worldwide phenomenon afflicting developing as well as developed countries.  In China, overweight rates doubled from 13.5 to 26.7 % between 1991 and 2006 according to the OECD, while the prevalence of diabetes reportedly reached a level similar to the U.S at over 92 million obese.  In Brazil, obesity rates tripled in men and almost doubled in women between 1975 and 2003.

In January, 2011 CNN reported on OECD data indicating Mexico has the world’s highest national share of people 15 and older who are overweight or obesity at 69.5 %of the population.  Mexico’s Institute for Public Health reports that diabetes of which obesity is a contributing factor is the leading cause of mortality in the country.

Adults with a Body Mass Index over 30 are generally considered obese, while those with a BMI over 25 but less than 30 are classified as weight.  BMI can be calculated by the formula weight (kg) / [height (m)] 2 .The corresponding BMI with the same risk level may be higher / lower than 30 for some ethnic groups.  The chart below shows the overweight and obesity % for the OECD countries.

The global obesity therapy marketed in 2012 and a projection for 2022. The market is projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 35 % from 0.4 billion U.S. dollars in 2012 to some 8.4 billion in 2022.

Fund Allotment to obesity Research

Obesity nearing $150 billion annually childhood obesity remains a pressing public health concern. Taxpayers fund about $60 billion of these costs through Medicare & Medicaid.  If obesity rates are reduced by as little as 5 %, health care savings could exceed $29 billion. The past three decades and today, an estimated 16.9 % of U.S. children and adolescents ages 2 to 19 are obesity, 31.7 % are either obesity or overweight. In sheer numbers, more than 12 million American children and adolescents are obesity and more than 23 million are either obesity or overweight. In one large study, 61 % of overweight 5 to 10 year olds already had at least one risk factor for heart disease and 26 % had two or more risk factors. There is a 70 % chance that an overweight adolescent will be overweight or obese as an adult.

By adulthood, obesity-associated heart disease, some cancers, stroke, type 2 diabetes are the first, second, third, and seventh leading U.S causes of death. Moreover obesity is costly.  Among children and adolescents, annual hospital costs related to obesity were $127 million during 1997 to 1999 up from $35 million during 1979–1981. From 1987 to 2001, obesity-associated diseases accounted for 27 % of the increases in U.S. medical costs.
