VLCC, a leading Wellness brand in South Asia and the Middle East, has been committed to spreading awareness about obesity and its ill effects. On the eve of Anti-Obesity Day (26th November), an initiative that the organization launched 12 years ago, VLCC released a knowledge paper that shares the growing prevalence as well as seriousness of osteoporosis as a health condition and ascertains a linkage between Obesity and Osteoporosis. This is another step in VLCC's on-going efforts to ensure a better quality of life for everyone and highlight the problems arising from obesity, a dominant lifestyle disease prevailing today.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), osteoporosis is second only to cardiovascular disease, as a global healthcare problem. About 300 million people in India suffer from osteoporosis and it is speculated that in the next decade as much as 50% of the Indian population will be victim to this condition. Osteoporosis is also three times as common in Indian males as compared to their counterparts anywhere else in the world. The VLCC Study on Obesity & Osteoporosis highlights the growing dangers of Osteoporosis and its direct linkage to Obesity. The study was commissioned under the watchful eyes of Dr Veena Aggarwal, Head of R&D, VLCC Health Care Ltd
