If you have been living in a cave or isolated from the rest of the world, you may not have heard that there is an obesity crisis in this county and around the world. The bread, corn, potatoes, rice and pasta we eat daily has contributed to help make fast food and saturated fatty foods the guilty culprit! Unfortunately as a recent Forbes Magazine article described; athletes such as Lebron James and Peyton Manning continue to support the junk food market and Eli Manning owns Papa John’s restaurants. According to the article: the projecting growth of chronic medical conditions such as stroke, heart attacks, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes and hypertension will be between 7 and 25% over the next 12 years. All of these chronic medical conditions are related to obesity. The fortunate news is that we can resolve the obesity problem. “Educating patients on what to eat and how much to eat are the keys to prevention while bariatric surgery can cure Diabetes and many other medical conditions while allowing for sustained weight loss,” says Dr. Neil Floch of Fairfield County Bariatrics. Amazingly, diet and exercise alone cannot change your weight. This fact shocks people and creates disbelief said Dr. Floch. 

Dr. Neil Floch, Dr. Craig Floch, and Dr. Abe Fridman of Fairfield County Bariatrics & Surgical Specialists, P.C. extend an invitation to everyone, children too, to join them on June 7th from 10am to 2pm, at the Pavilion @Cranbury Park in Norwalk for their 2nd ANNUAL WALK FOR OBESITY HEALTH FAIR to learn more about this global crisis and the cure for it. Fairfield County Bariatrics & Surgical Specialists, P.C. has, and continues to take the lead in building awareness with their Annual Walk For Obesity Health Fair. We must tackle this obesity crisis and work on what needs to be done to solve this global problem before it is too late.
