The health committee of New Zealandís Parliament announced yesterday that it will hold an inquiry into obesity as the country is under the grip of the dreaded epidemic which threatens to collapse the public health system. Obesity is arguably the most serious public health crisis confronting New Zealand and itís posing a major threat to peopleís life.

Obesity is linked to a range of conditions including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, strokes and some form of cancers. Until and unless these problems are addressed properly, itís going to put huge strains on the health budget as the number of New Zealanders requiring hospitalization will increase.

The dreaded ailment of obesity can be taken care of with the help of diet pills such as phentermine. Weight loss drugs such as phentermine have proved to be of great help for millions of people suffering from obesity.

good subject
though not the sought after gossip news most seek, i am grateful for your drawing attention to this sad state many humans experience within the 'civilized' societies...i wonder when advertising the ill food on television, glamorized, enlarged, even sexualized will gain attention in that it directly contributes to unhealthy and conditioned eating habits, horridly insulting our intelligence besides resulting in our collective physical, mental, emotional, spiritual decay?
