Healthy Living: Top Health Killer

New research exposes the health conditions that shorten Americans’ lives, and the kicker is they are preventable!

In Healthy Living, Katie Boomgaard reveals the top killer, and how you can avoid being a statistic.     

In Japan, less than five percent of the population is considered obese.

In 2008, the Japanese government enacted the "Metabo Law," which set waistline limits for adults between ages 40 and 74.

If you exceed the limit, which are 33.5 inches for men and 35.4 inches for women, you must attend counseling and support sessions.

Local governments and companies that don’t meet the waistline targets are fined.
