Obesity

Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being overweight, which means weighing too much. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat, and/or body water. Both terms mean that a person's weight is greater than what's considered healthy for his or her height. . Obesity occurs over time when you eat more calories than you use. The balance between calories-in and calories-out differs for each person. Factors that might affect your weight include your genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods, and not being physically active. . Being obese increases your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and some cancers. If you are obese, losing even 5 to 10 percent of your weight can delay or prevent some of these diseases. For example, that means losing 10 to 20 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds.

Fructose

A hexose with a keto group, also called a keto-hexose. Aside from the keto group, each of the 5 remaining carbons has one hydroxyl group, in the S,R, and R configuration counting from the first hydroxyl containing asymmetric carbon next to the ketone in the straight chain (=Fisher) projection. All other carbons are bound to hydrogen exclusively. Occurs mostly as furan and rarely as pyran or straight chain. When fructose forms a ring an additional ""anomeric"" asymmetric carbon is created which is denoted as ""alpha"" or ""beta"". For isomers see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/fructose. [from NCI]
