Living Right: Obesity

According to Journal of the American Medical Association, obesity rates in the U.S. have stabilized, but the collective American waistline is still ever increasing.

Stress, pollutants, poor sleep, hormones, you name it: they all could be reasons. 

But your love handles aren’t just cosmetically challenging, they could indicate a much bigger problem.

Katie Boomgaard has the story in Living Right.

Obesity has been cited as a contributing factor for up to 400,000 deaths in the United States per year, and related health care costs even exceed that of those associated with smoking!

These costs account for up to 12 percent of the nation’s total health care costs every year.
