Obesity Solutions

Consumer awareness of the link between nutrition and obesity is high.

In The Obesity Epidemic, we explore the inter-locking factors that have led to the nation's obesity crisis, and we examine consequences and solutions, including:

  • The corporate influence of McDonald’s and the three largest U.S. soft drinks companies.
  • The more than one-third of American adults (36%) who do not engage in regular physical activity.
  • The medical cost of adult obesity in the U.S. is estimated to range from $147 billion to nearly $210 billion per year.
  • The effect of increased Public Awareness campaigns by federal, state and local organizations encouraging consumers to be pro-active about weight management.

The challenge facing consumers and institutions are significant, but signs are emerging that through increased awareness, the tide is turning against the obesity epidemic.
