No, that figure is not the money you have in your bank account. That figure crudely represents the number of individuals suffering from one of the world’s most common diseases even as you are reading this sentence right now—obesity.
At present, an estimated $120,000 has been spent battling this diet-related disorder which no longer just plagues wealthy countries but also includes developing ones. The rate at which this illness is spreading worldwide is alarming. In two decades, the number of sufferers has nearly doubled, and it shows no signs yet of slowing down.
Not only are obese individuals becoming a more visible target for bullies, they have also become the prime target for some of the world’s deadliest diseases—cardiovascular problems, diabetes, and cancer. Yes, you’ve read that right. Cancer. In fact, the National Cancer Institute reports that about 84,000 diagnoses of cancer every year could be attributed to obesity, something that only a few are aware of.
If you are one of those who suffer from this problem, or know of someone who does, rest assured that your future, or your friend’s for that matter, is not as doomed as you might have pictured it to be.
A healthy diet and exercise is of course necessary to fight off this illness, but don’t you sometimes wish that you could just wake up thinner one day? Or that you could just prick yourself with a pin and then miraculously shrink?
But what if you could? What if a breakthrough in science will tell you that you could “prick” your body’s excess fats away?
For hundreds of years, a certain type of cactus which is endemic to Saudi Arabia, India, Afghanistan, Southern Europe, and the Canary Islands has been traditionally used by hunters to quench off thirst, stave off hunger, and boost stamina. Known by its scientific name Caralluma fimbriata, also commonly called the Caralluma cactus, this plant blooms unpleasant-smelling flowers of red, yellow, or black from summer to fall.
Studies show that this plant could be effectively used for weight loss as it works on the hunger control area of your brain, supressing your appetite naturally and thus helping you to say no to those extra calories you know you’re not supposed to take anyway.
Capsuled Caralluma fimbriata is available at any drugstore near your place or online, and it is also available in powder form. For instructions on the dosage of the supplement, refer to the dosage instructions on the bottle or in the package insert. Should you have further clarifications it is always best to consult with your physician.
