Besides that it has many negative effects on health, obesity also costs a lot.
Having to worry and stress themselves about the weight, those obese patients who need hip and knee replacements will definitely have to put some effort into managing their weight as health groups in Suffolk area in England have decided to ban surgeries for obese people.

Doctors report that most of their problems arrive from being obese, and that there is no point in operating patients whose body mass indexes are over 30, as they will just put too much weight on them all over again and reduce good effects of the surgery.

The good thing is that these health groups are not hiding the primary cause of the restriction - financial problems in health departments.
