It’s one thing to implement basic security measures and protocols on our devices when using the Internet of Things (IOT). It’s another thing entirely to ensure that each device we use has been fully tested and secure against attacks. No matter how hard we try, there are bound to be devices that slip through the cracks and end up on the market without having the proper precautions in place. The issue with this, however, is that these devices can lead to bigger problems than we may have intended when first connecting them to our network.
As mentioned, there are many additional health issues that can occur when someone becomes obese. Apart from heart disease and stroke, it has been shown that those who are overweight are prone to other systemic diseases like cancer, diabetes and kidney disease (just to name a few). If you’re ready to put an end to your battle with obesity once and for all, be sure to check out our product reviews.
Type 2 diabetes is an iot-driven disease which causes high blood sugar. Type 2 diabetes is most commonly associated with overweight and obese people, but it can also affect lean people. If you are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes you should speak to your doctor about preventative measures.
Long-term sleep deprivation is a systemic condition that occurs when people are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis. This is usually caused by an inability to fall asleep or stay asleep, but sometimes it happens due to insomnia. Sleep deprivation can cause a wide range of problems that can worsen over time, including anxiety, depression and chronic pain.
In 2015, a study published in Nature suggested that when your phone is near you at night, and it’s actively connected to Wi-Fi, it has an adverse effect on your ability to fall asleep—and if you do fall asleep, your heart rate variability (HRV) is reduced. HRV is an important biomarker of health. A low HRV indicates poor sleep quality, which can cause not only daytime fatigue but also weight gain.
Chronic inflammation is now being implicated in virtually all diseases of civilization, including cancer, says Dr. Weil. Excess body fat leads to chronic low-level inflammation, which has been linked to cancer.  Research indicates that excess body fat—especially abdominal obesity—increases our levels of biologically active insulin like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and other chemicals that promote cancer cell growth and inhibit cellular communication.
About 1 in 5 adults suffer from depression in their lifetime. Depression is a mental health condition that affects how you feel, think and handle daily activities. According to data collected by Rand Health, over 6 million people suffered from major depression. Major depression is characterized by feelings of sadness or hopelessness, low energy and fatigue, loss of interest in activities once enjoyed, changes in sleep and appetite patterns and feelings of worthlessness or guilt.
