The Obesity Epidemic
America is in a health care crisis. America has an Obesity Epidemic.
2/3 of Americans are overweight and 1/3 are obese. If you do the math, that equates to 78.6 million Americans who are obese and 157.2 million who are overweight. Wowzahs! I don’t know about you, but that means this country needs a serious focus on weight loss and an overhaul in healthy living.
