Current Health Statistics Are Grim Here’s How We Can Improve Them

Research shows that more than 69% of adults age 20+ are overweight or obese (Body Mass Index – BMI > 25). Child obesity has tripled in the past 30 years. (1) Furthermore, obesity-related conditions including heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer are all on the list of leading causes of death and all are lifestyle related diseases which are mostly preventable deaths. (2, 3)

The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the US was $190 billion in 2012. In America, if the obesity rates continue to rise on their current path, the number of new cases of Type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease and stroke, hypertension and arthritis could increase by ten times that number by 2020, and double again by 2030. (5) Obesity has risen by 34% since 1960, and morbid obesity (BMI above 40) has risen six fold to 6%. (4)  According to the Boston Medical Centre, approximately 45 million Americans diet each year and spend $33 billion on weight loss products in their pursuit of a trimmer, fitter, healthier body. (6)

Worldwide, over one billion people are obese, (7)While genetics can predispose an individual to gain excess weight, the environment must be conducive in order for a person to become obese.

It is only by examining the core reason for the problem that we can find a way to improve it.
