Obesity May Have More Causes Than Previously Thought, ABC News Report Says

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) September 01, 2013

A new report has found that obesity has multiple causes and that exercise and diet may not be enough to remove excess weight, according an article from ABC News entitled “Obesity May Be More Than One Disease, Experts Say,” ( published August 20, 2013.

The American Medical Association has recently classified obesity as a disease, but the report speaks to a researcher, Nikhil Dhurandhar, currently working on causes for obesity who believes it may be helpful to consider obesity more like a group of chronic diseases that all exhibit the same primary symptom: excess body fat.

Dr. Dhurandhar, a researcher at Pennington Biomedical Research as well as associate editor for the International Journal of Obesity and next in line for the presidency of the Obesity Society, has performed groundbreaking research proving that there are other causes of obesity than simply excess eating by proving the existence and effect of an obesity-causing virus. His research showed the virus present in 30 percent of obese individuals, and only 11 percent of individuals of normal weight.

Dhurandhar told ABC News that scientists have already identified 84 individual contributors to the cause of obesity, including things like viruses, as well as genetic and environmental causes. He says that about a dozen of what the report calls “obesogenic culprits” are being studied in depth in laboratory settings worldwide, currently.

Another expert interviewed for the report, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine director of research development and administration Dr. Christopher Ochner, believes that trying to separate obesity into different disease classifications may only make losing weight more difficult. Ochner states, “At the end of the day, we still have the law of energy balance to contend with. If you ingest more than you expend you are going to gain weight, period." However, he concedes that only 1% of individuals succeed in losing weight and maintaining weight loss with diet and exercise alone.

Since 99% of individuals cannot lose weight and keep it off with just diet and exercise, they may need to make other adjustments.
