Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Obese woman. Thermogram of an obese woman's torso. A thermogram shows the variation in temperature on the surface of an object, measured by the long-wave infrared radiation it emits. The temperature scale is colour-coded and runs from blue (coldest) through green, yellow, orange and red to pink (warmest). Temperature regulation is more difficult in obese people and sweating is increased (pink areas). Obesity increases the risks of developing many conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis and high blood pressure.
