Caption: X-ray of both knees (frontal view) of an obese 23 year-old woman, who weighs 175 kilograms. This is part of a study on the effects of obesity on bone density and joint health. Obesity is known to increase pressure on joints, leading to premature joint erosion and arthritis. However, some controversy remains over whether obesity is beneficial or detrimental to bone density. Here, the femur (thigh bone, upper frame), tibia and fibula (lower frame) are visible.
