Understanding Obesity - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Understanding obesity. The words overweight and obesity mean a person's body weight is higher than what is considered healthy for their height. In general, people can become overweight or obese due to an imbalance of energy. Energy in comes from calories in the food you eat. Energy out is the amount of calories your body burns during physical activity. Over time, if your energy in is less than your energy out you will lose weight. If your energy in is about the same as your energy out, your weight will stay the same. If your energy in is greater than your energy out, you will gain weight. Risks for becoming obese include: an inactive lifestyle, lack of access to places to exercise, lack of access to healthy food, a diet rich in high-calorie, fatty, and sugary foods. Meals with oversized food portions, having a family history of being overweight, or obese, diseases such as hypothyroidism, and polycystic ovary syndrome, side effects from some medications, lack of sleep, emotions that can make you want to eat more and advertisements for high-calorie unhealthy food and drinks. Obesity raises your risk of developing health problems such as type two diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers. If you have questions about obesity, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"We are extremely pleased with the quality of the medical exhibits and the timely manner in which they were provided. I will certainly recommend your company to my business associates who could benefit from your services. Please tell Brian Wilson [Director of Content Development, Senior Medical Illustrator] that he did an exceptional job on these exhibits."

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."
