Fat can accumulate anywhere on the body, even around the head and neck, especially the back. These areas accumulate too much fat and can compress nerves, causing headaches and neck pain.
Obesity is another of the most common risk factors for sleep apnea. Sleep apnea refers to temporarily blocking breathing after sleep because the tissues of the upper airway are too close to each other. This condition can lead to memory difficulties, low energy, difficulty breathing, swelling of the legs and high blood pressure. In the long run, it can also cause stroke, high blood pressure and sudden death.
Excessive fat makes breathing more difficult and blood flow becomes more difficult to perform an effective oxygen cycle. This can lead to inadequate function, impaired immune system, and even high blood pressure. This is because the lungs are not solid structures but are crushed by external forces. Bell explained: “The fat will not swell inward and will only bulge outward. This is why obese people have a big belly.
