I hardly find the 'illness' of obesity as life threatening as Aids, or cancer or the likewise illness which need fast treatment! What does everyone else think?

What you hardly find is neither here nor there. The fact is that heart disease caused by obesity is just about to overtake cancer caused by smoking as the #1 preventable killer here in the US. Death by AIDS is peanuts by comparison.

I know it's a different case in Africa where almost nobody is obese and 30% have HIV/AIDS in some countries but AIDS/HIV in the West is of small concern when compared to heart disease.

Yes of course, obesity opens the path to a whole host of diseases. Poor diet can lead to an increased rate of cancer so you can't say obesity and cancer are mutually exclusive anyway.
