Obesity is a growing medical unexpected ways

Obesity contributes to many diseases, including kidney and liver diseases that eventually require transplants. But it impacts the medical system in other ways. The Telegraph has the story:  Hospitals buy special fridges to store overweight bodies as obesity crisis escalates: Doctors warn Britain's obesity crisis could 'cripple' the NHS as hospitals are being forced to buy and rent specialist equipment to deal with overweight patients

"Britain’s obesity crisis is so serious that hospitals are buying specialist equipment to keep bodies cool because they are too large to fit into mortuary fridges."
