Obesity affects millions and millions of people around the globe, and it can be fatal. It can be fatal because people run the risk of health complications and diseases, some of which are life threatening.

A lower body weight will reduce the persons blood pressure. A high blood pressure can be fatal for an obese and asthmatic person, and so losing weight will not only improve ones confidence and appearance, but will drastically improve their health.
Losing weight has so many health benefits to an asthmatic, one of which includes lower the glucose that is in the body. A high amount of glucose increases the risk of diabetes as well as cholesterol, which are extremely critical in the health of an individual.
