Obesity is a word used to describe people who are very overweight.

Being obese can cause a lot of day-to-day health problems.

It can also lead to serious health problems, like diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Being obese means that you are likely to die younger than if you are a healthy weight.

Obesity is normally caused by eating too much and moving too little.
