Obesity

I just started my new classes for this semester and Research Methods for Health Sciences is one of them (I know lucky me) our final paper was introduced and we will be working towards it through the class with little assignments blah blah...  

I need to pick a topic which includes distinguishing a research problem from a health problem, an example of this would be obesity. Obesity is VERY researchable, AND is a health problem. My problem is a lot of people have picked this already and I want to do something different just need some ideas/suggestions.

Help please? 

Thank You in advance.

Arthritis...given the advancing age of population, obesity, etc. arthritis is a growing problem. You could look at osteoarthritis, treatments, joint replacements, etc.

How about cancer research? As we know it there's no cure, but I heard a couple of times there is a cure, that the FDA and the government aren't telling us so they can profit from all the meds so many people take. I don't know for a fact if this is true, but it's worth looking into.

You could also research asthma. It seems to be on the rise...causes a ton of missed school days...hospital visits, etc. It is a very relevant topic. Other ideas that come to mind are gastric bypass surgery options(spin off of obesity)...
