Obesity Fat Research

Obesity in children tripled from 1981 to 1996, according to the Canadian Medical Association.

Diabetes alone affects more than two million Canadians, the overwhelming majority battling Type 2, the adult variety that is most closely associated with obesity.

"Some people are saying the environment we find ourselves in now in western society is a diabetes-toxic environment, because there's tons of food, easily available, often high fat, high calories and super servings," says Dr. Sorisky, who is attached to the Hormones, Growth and Development unit. Dr. Sorisky, an endocrinologist, is at the forefront of research into the most basic but difficult questions about fat.

Why is it that some people eat like elephants but stay paper thin? Why do people who lose weight tend to put it all back on? How can someone be both fat and fit?

There are no easy answers to these questions, and the inquiry delves into many fields: biochemistry, genetics, endocrinology, medicine, human behaviour.

Obesity and Weight Loss
Obesity is now the "trillion dollar disease". This reflects the social costs of obesity, in health and lost production, as well as the weight loss drug profits that might be made for any pharmaceutical company that finds a drug-cure for obesity. The search for viable weight loss medications continues, although pharmaceutical weight loss products still have significant side effects.
