Obesity – Epidemic – Facts

According to scientific projections presented at the recent Annual American Heart Association Meeting (AHA Scientific Session November 16, 2011 Orlando, FL), Americans are on the fast track to catastrophic health consequences as a result of unhealthy living. Based on the researcher’s analysis, 83 percent of men and 72 percent women will be overweight or obese in 2020. And 77 percent of men and 53 percent of women will have either pre-diabetes or diabetes.

Make no mistake – such levels of chronic disease are simply unsustainable. We cannot and will not remain a thriving productive society with this much sickness. Reversing these staggering trends will take broad spectrum, systemic, collective action among all facets of our society, but begins with YOU and YOUR FAMILY! This is what YOU can do NOW to help.
