The external cause is: an accumulation of fat in the body caused by nutrient imbalance resulted from unbalanced diet, bad living styles and lack of physical exercises and the maladjustment of the digestive system and endocrine system. Obesity is followed by laziness, which consequently creates a vicious circle. It is a disease of living styles as well as a metabolic syndrome.

Animal hormones are chemical substances for signal transmission in the body whose role is to regulate the physiological functions (metabolism, growth, development and reproduction) in the body and maintain the relative stability of the body environment.

Plant hormones are natural organic compounds that can regulate plant growth and belong to the steroid or simple organic acid family. Despite the use of "hormone", they differ greatly from animal hormone in terms of the origin, biological synthesis, transmission process and effects in that it is just a growth factor for plants without any negative effect on the body.
