    Obesity, diabetes, and cancer. "More than one-third (34.9% or 78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese" according to CDC Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death. The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the U.S. was $147 billion in 2008 U.S. dollars; the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight. Number 1 epidemic is certainly obesity within the US and I love health and fitness. Had to lose weight personally or was going to suffer from it.
