I'm going to write a seminar paper on obesity. One chapter will presumably be called "Reasons for the Worldwide Increase in Obesity". In its subchapters several reasons will be dealt with in detail.
I don't really know how to formulate the headings of these subchapters. Is it very akward to use a gerund to start the heading with? Like "Taking certain types of medecine" or "Eating too much" etc. ?

Thanks in advance!

It's fine.

You don't need to say "Thanks in advance." It's obviously in advance. "Thanks," "Thank you," "Thanks a lot," or "Thanks so much" are better.

You don't need to say 'thanks' at all in your posts.

Just click on 'Thank' in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.
