Learning online or e-learning courses have several obvious advantages which benefit the student. Other than being able to learn any time and in any place 24/7 add flexibility to the process. Choosing the time suits you to advance your learning.
The coursework is available to the learner to go over and to revise countless of times before finally taking the exam. Also, should the first results are not satisfactorily, you can retake the exam.
You are no longer restricted to set hours and having to rebook another course when the exam results are not as good as you can achieve.
In 2014, 58% of women and 65% of men in England were overweight or obese. Being obese increases your risk of developing certain chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers and can decrease your overall quality of life. The overall cause of obesity simply put is an energy imbalance, between calories, consumed and calories expended (calories in are greater than calories out)
However, the reasons behind this imbalance are complicated, involving a large number of different factors. In 2007 the Foresight Tackling Obesity: Future Choices report tried to map out all the factors that could affect obesity. They identified 108 different variables! This shows how complex it may be to reduce obesity in our population, and that focusing on only one factor may not prove successful.
