Alfa HFI counters deadly obesity virus
() - December 14, 2009 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Obesity or simply the state of exceeding the ideal body weight by 100 lbs. for males, or 80 lbs. for females, is associated with a higher risk of disease, which leads to early death. Apparently, with the numbers rising to approximately 350 million obese people around the world, wherein about 500,000 of them are Filipinos; it is alarming to note that some of these patients are very young and need surgical intervention.

Interestingly, while many of us are trying to take pleasure in an unhealthy diet and in a lifestyle with less or no exercise, these patients are beginning to feel the pains and emotional regrets of being obese. Largely affected are women who suffer ridicule and discrimination that significantly affect their self-confidence and integrity. Studies have shown that obese people also experience complications like diabetes, heart problems, osteoarthritis, stroke, cancers, weak stamina, and chronic depression, among others.

It is well-known that increased food intake and decreased physical activity eventually result in obesity. In the recent years, however, scientific research discovered another possible reason; they identified an epidemic known as the Human Adenovirus 36 (Ad-36) or the Obesity Virus, which can be caught as easily as a common cold from other people’s coughs, sneezes and dirty hands.

Dr. Nikhil Dhurandhar, an associate professor at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center, in Lousiana, said the parasitic virus, causes sniffles and sore throats as it infects the lungs then whisks around the body forcing fat cells to become fatter and multiply at a tremendous rate.

Understanding the alarming growth of the obese population worldwide, health advocate Hans Palacios and Civic Leader for Public Awareness and Education Jake Ortiz indulge in efforts to spread a public awareness campaign about obesity and the Ad-36 virus, at DWIZ every Sunday at 10-11:00 AM, in partnership with www.thebignm.com - the only network management website for Filipinos.

Backed by 15 years of study and clinical tests, Alfa HFI is a breakthrough discovery and was created by scientists as the nature’s most powerful broad spectrum antiviral solution to address this concern. It is an all-natural, pure, and safe dietary supplement.

Alfa HFI also works both as preventive and immune system supportive and will be a valuable support for people seeking relief from nutritional imbalances, immune system disorders and viral diseases. It has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antibiotic, anti-allergic, anti-arthritic, anti-ulcerogenic, immuno-modulatory and other health benefits.
