Obesity

Are you at risk to become obese? Have you ever seen an obese person? How did you feel when you see him/her? Did you know that in 2014 more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older are overweight? My issue is obesity and my passion is dancing. My issue is connected with my passion because when you are obese you have to be an active person to become healthy again and when you are dancing you are active and exercising. I chose my issue because obesity is a really big health threat. I choose dancing as my passion because without dancing I can’t be fit and healthy. My action was to make people dance so that they have less of a chance to become obese and unhealthy.

Obesity is when someone is so overweight he or she is at risk of having other health problems like Cardiovascular disease, stroke, breast or colon cancer. This is an important issue for me because when I grow up I might maybe become obese. I choose obesity because obesity is a quick growing health problem. In 2005 nearly 20 million kids under the age of 5 were overweight around the world. This issue is so important because if you are obese and you don’t exercise then you have a chance to have Cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease kills 17 million people per year. If we don’t do anything about this issue then our future will have more obese people and most of them will die because of being obese. So if you are obese then you need to be more active. This is one of the biggest issues in the world.

My passion is about dancing. Dancing is a way to express yourself as who you are. Dancing is related to my issue because my issue is about obesity and when you are obese then you need to exercise and dancing is kind of exercise but it is a more fun way to do it. Dancing is important to me because it keeps me fit and healthy. Also it is important to me because with dance I can express myself.  My passion for dancing started when I was a small girl. My mom wanted me to do ballet and so I started taking lessons. Then the place that I did ballet said that we could also do street jazz and I said “Yes” and started my dance life. Now days I am still dancing.

My action was to make people dance so that they were active. I have people dance so that they can be active and prevent themselves so that they won’t become obese. Also those who join can tell others about being active and more people will have less of a risk of being obese. This will help effect the issue but I don’t think that it will solve the problem of obesity forever because this issue is worldwide and my action might affect only some countries.

My issue is obesity and my passion is dancing. I challenge you to do 30 minutes of dancing 3 days per week and tell 2 people to exercise too. My issue shows that I am a thinker because I am thinking about other people’s health issues and problems. My actions shows that I am a thinker because I am thinking about how people can be healthier and not be at risk of being obese. Now have a think about how you can help solve this problem and how you can help others who are at risk of being obese.
