Weight Management Forecast 2015 [Deep Dive]
There’s no easy way to put it: America continues to struggle with its ongoing battle of the bulge. According to World Health Organization statistics, nearly 2 billion adults (39 percent) were considered to be overweight in 2014, with more than 600 million (13 percent) clinically classified as obese. What makes this epidemic even more worrisome is the pace at which it continues to creep into the realm of children—42 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2013.
As waistlines expand, so too do the medical costs for obesity-related health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders and certain cancers.
