Coronavirus or Obesity: Who kills more?

The Coronavirus can be controlled by vaccines, but the whole world will have to do a lot more to control obesity.

The world is currently plagued by two global epidemics, the Corona virus on one side and the obesity epidemic on the other. More than one million people have died due to Coronavirus while obesity has killed more than four million people in the same period.

Interestingly, the Coronavirus can be controlled by vaccines, but the whole world will have to do a lot more to control obesity.

These views were expressed by national and international gastroenterologists on Monday while addressing the 3rd International Conference under the auspices of Pakistan GI and Liver Diseases Society.

Apart from experts from different cities of Pakistan, gastroenterologists from India, UK, Azerbaijan, Malaysia and other countries participated in the conference and presented research papers.

On this occasion, Dr. Prof. Lubna Kamani from Aga Khan University Hospital Karachi and Liaquat National Hospital were elected President of the Society while Prof. Nazish Butt from Jinnah Hospital was elected Vice President of the Society.

Former Registrar of Dow University Prof. Amanullah Abbasi was elected General Secretary of the Society while Dr. Hafeezullah Sheikh was elected Publication Secretary of the Society.

Famous Celebrity Diets:

Here’s how some famous celebrities lost their weight with a few following the most bizarre celebrity diets of all time.

Adele has reportedly tried the Sirtfood diet, which promises to help you lose seven pounds in seven days.

At the start of the diet, you’re supposed to restrict yourself to just 1,000 calories a day for three days straight. On days four through seven, you can eat 1,500 calories.

In 2006, Beyonce told Oprah she lost weight for her role in “Dream Girls” using the Master Cleanse diet, a restrictive juice fast. She’s now promoting another extreme plan.

The Master Cleanse is a 10-day juice cleanse that requires dieters to eat nothing and drink only a lemon, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper concoction.

Mariah Carey has said she eats nothing but Norwegian salmon and capers every day. Although eating protein can help keep you satiated, eating nothing but salmon means you won’t get critical nutrients found foods like vegetables, fruits, and grains.

Actress Shailene Woodley eats clay regularly for its supposed detoxifying attributes. Clay might have trace amounts of some beneficial minerals, like iron and calcium, but there are better ways to obtain them (for instance, by eating foods rich in those minerals like spinach, broccoli, kale, and nuts).

Some diets are good for some and some are not. Hence we can safely say that they vary from person to person. But one thing is for sure that in current pandemic, one needs to work twice as hard to tackle obesity, on individual level.
