Morbid Obesity: Will You Allow It To Kill You?

We rated this book:


Morbid Obesity: Will You Allow it to Kill You? is an educational, informative, detailed, and, yes, frightening look into the complex world of the morbidly obese. Dr. Eduardo Chapunoff’s timely work is not a simple how-to book in weight loss, but combines thorough descriptions of the cardiovascular and other physiological systems of the body that are stressed by excessive weight. The doctor’s illustrations will help the reader understand the mechanisms responsible for heart attacks, congestive heart failure, strokes, cardiac rhythm disturbances, depression, sleep apnea, sexual dysfunction, and diabetes, among many conditions, including sudden death. All these major health risks are significant possibilities for the morbidly obese. However, the author offers hope to those so afflicted by sharing real-life success stories of those who have shed their excess weight, and then explains various treatments and programs that are available. The doctor also addresses the very timely issue that surrounds the discrimination and ineffectiveness of some insurance corporations in their oftentimes unwillingness to cover the costs of weight-loss surgery.

This book is written not only for those who suffer from morbid obesity, but for the entire health profession and related industries as an educational tool, as well as providing inspiration and real-world choices and methods toward achieving a healthier, happier life.
