Abstract


Obezitatea este o afecţiune complexă, multifactorială, caracterizată prin creşterea greutăţii corporale pe seama ţesutului adipos. În ultimele decade a devenit una dintre cele mai frecvente boli de nutriţie din lume, având amploarea unei pandemii, conform raportului OMS, fiind considerată boala secolului. Zeci de milioane de oameni au fost infectați cu noul coronavirus ȋn ȋntreaga lume, iar o mare parte dintre aceștia au suferit de o simptomatologie gravă care, de multe ori, a condus la deces. Omenirea se află ȋn una dintre cele mai dificile perioade ale acestei generații.
