WHY DO SCHOOL STUDENTS
BECOME OVERWEIGHT OR OBESE?
Researchers in Australia seem to have found that one fourth of the students in Australian secondary schools are either overweight or obese.

The researchers seem to have found that the “male students were more likely to be overweight or obese as were students who sleep less, do not exercise regularly, spend more time using electronic media, and come from a lower socioeconomic background”.
My intention is NOT to deny the findings of the researchers.
My only interest is to offer a proper explanation or sensible reasoning for the above occurrence.
(a) Reduced water consumption
(b) Withholding urinal pressure for prolonged periods for various reasons, such as: staying in the classroom until recession, short intervals, students’ interest in spending more time eating at the canteen or playing with friends, lack of toilet facilities, dirty toilets, and the like.
This will induce profuse sweating, resulting in hyperhidrosis, that happens as the brain’s remedial measure to reduce the urinal bladder pressure. This will result in the loss of water from within the body.
(c) Loss of body water through profuse sweating, which can be due to several reasons, such as sitting in a room that is devoid of ventilation, staying in a strongly air-conditioned room wherein the air-conditioner ‘sucks’ the body moisture (and that ‘urinates’ on our behalf) (dehydration), sitting under strong air currents created by ceiling fans, playing football and the like – especially in hot weather, jogging – worst being Marathon runs, etc.
should (or how does) under-urination make a person obese.
A school student’s body – as in the case of all humans
requires only a definite quantity of ALL the substances that
are utilized for a healthy growth and maintenance.
Only a definite quantity (which of course will vary from one individual to
another) of each of the vitamins, such as A, B, C, and the lik
and a definite quantity of minerals such as Calcium,
Magnesium, Iron, and the like are required on a daily basis.

satisfaction that develops when one has eaten stomach-full.

mineral, is over-consumed, the brain somehow tries to get
rid of the excess so as to keep the body in a healthy
state rather than developing diseases such as
Hypervitaminosis-A, Iron toxicity, or Obesity.
The brain appears to achieve this essentially through two
- The urination removes such excesses, often helped by liver, kidney, etc., and
- The faeces removes the undigested excesses.

body weight) to a higher level.

the student (or any adult) urinates.

relevance to the quantity of the excesses that have
accumulated within the body of the person.
under normal circumstances, an adult may require an intake
of about 2 to 3 L of water in a 24-hour day, and may have to
urinate nearly all of it, which may necessitate voiding about 8
or 9 times.

activity, type of food consumed, and the like. We should not
fix it. Such a suggestion can result in misguidance.

accumulate within the body, and this will invariably make the
student over-weight or obese.
the schools’ educational system, can realize the above facts,
they would plan the curriculum in such a way that the
students will be encouraged to urinate once every two hours.
This will almost definitely keep at least about 90% of the
students without turning overweight and/or obese.
