I read google news almost every morning, today this article caught my eye: http://www.businessinsider.com/infographic-the-business-of-obesity-2012-8
In a nutshell, it is an overview of the impact that obesity has on the US economy. Some pretty startling facts; and while it is primarily related to obesity in adulthood, we haven't solved the problem yet. The 16.9% of US children that are obese (cdc.gov) are a part of our future. Hey, maybe PowerUp Fitness can help the economy? (I like to dream big)...
I'd love to hear what you think! Do these stats surprise you?
