Did you know that chronic diseases cost US employers $1.3 trillion a year in lost productivity and treatment costs? Costs can be as much as 40% higher in one year for someone who is overweight because of the numerous issues associated with obesity, including diabetes, back problems, asthma, hypertension, depression, and heart disease? Between 8% and 20% of health care costs is due to the persistent rise in obesity and several of these conditions can be avoided by preventing or reducing obesity.
