The problem of obesity as a current health issue in the social domain is not an understatement. Besides the obvious health concern, it is a potential economic and social parasite. This condition negatively affects people’s productivity level and increases their affinity to internal organs complications. This may later be terminal, therefore, increasing the currently massive economy health care bill. The most crucial aspect is the way in which obesity affects children and young teenagers. The history of being fat, in addition to the media marketing, slimness as perfect and beautiful; critically dents the confidence and self-concept of obese fellows. Some keep silence and are no longer joyful while others have ended up defining themselves as fat.
Though the primary problem is obesity, this paper shifts focus to how it should be dealt with. The problem should now be less of attributes’ campaigns and more about real solutions; however, some options may be painful. The mode of this approach runs from an individual’s attitude towards the obese to the public responsibility of the health of other people. By understanding and accepting the obese, they should be given a helping hand though the risk of short-term rejection is priceless. Campaigning for deeper observance of foods and exercise should not be optional. Continuity of this practice leads to a creation of a wellness culture.
It is essential to note that, a wellness culture is immune to “fast fix” solutions and negative campaigns. It embraces sincerity and care. However, changing the public attitude is not an easy task. It needs massive resources in positive campaign from all the media sources, clinics for closer advice to the people, fighting off the sellers and providers of unhealthy foods and increasing physical education in schools and the public. However, through a long-term solution, it is sustainable to the future economy and health of all the citizenry of America.
