Obesity Costs the U.S. $215 Billion

According to a new study, obesity costs the U.S. economy $215 billion per year.

That’s 18% of the projected 2010 U.S.  federal deficit.


Isn’t it ironic that during a time of recession, the American public is unable to tighten their belts because they’re too damned fat.
