Plano, TX, May 17, 2019 - Dr. Nick Nicholson will appear on the Nicholson Clinic Facebook Page doing a “Live at Lunch” to discuss one of the leading causes of preventable deaths, obesity. Obesity continues to be on the rise among many adult Americans. The experts at the Nicholson Clinic for weight loss in Texas know that it has become a subject not talked about in today's culture. However, Dr. Nicholson is seeking to break the stigma of remaining silent about obesity.

During the Facebook Live at Lunch event at 12 pm CT on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, Dr. Nicholson will discuss the significant rise of adult obesity, and why health should be approached more proactively.  Over the past couple of years, obesity has become the leading cause of preventable death, ranking over tobacco-related diseases for the first time. Dr. Nicholson states that "Obesity has significant effects on our health. The longer an individual is obese, the more at risk they are of developing weight-related conditions such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis and even certain types of cancer." 

By talking about obesity, how genetics can play a role, and learning to break the cycle, is a start. There are options and help available, such as bariatric surgery for those who are suffering from being unable to shed the excess weight on their own.
