Every year, on 4th of March, World Obesity Day is held to emphasize that it goes beyond its “usual” meanings that are related to lifestyles, however, it becomes a concern, and in some cases, a disease that must be aware of, reducing its complications and health issues.

“Let’s talk about obesity and…” is the 2024 theme, under which the world’s direction is to talk more about obesity and raise awareness in this regard, in addition, promote the concept of health and the serious diseases that obesity causes.
