A recent government study estimated that medical spending for obesity reached $147 billion or roughly 9.1% in 2008. About 35% of American adults are overweight or obese. And that percentage is growing.
In an article written by Dr. Joseph Mercola recently, it was stated that Diabetes costs nearly $150 billion annually. Cancer costs nearly $200 billion annually. Heart Disease costs nearly $300 billion annually. The drug industry spends about $15 billion a year manipulating & distorting your perceptions about the proper solutions for your health. And the food industry spends twice that in brainwashing all of us to choose highly processed and fatty foods, which will only accelerate you path towards death & disease, but thats OK, because the drug industry can give you the latest and greatest drugs to control your symptoms.
How about eating right and exercising? How about not smoking and less drinking? Why not take care of ourselves the natural and healthy way. Its not that difficult of a concept. Let's all try it. Enlist help if you need it, but just do it...literally for your health & well-being.
