Obesity or illness of civilized societies, as some like to call it, is a disease that penetrated mankind and its spread is like a wildfire that is now threatening the entire community. In ancient times it rarely befitted doctors to talk about this disease because it was rare, and even our ancestors did not have a problem that is as severe as we see today because people mostly were slender and did not suffer from obesity or any of its complications (diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol).
