About the Food and Alcohol Addiction Market

There is no safe and effective appetite suppressant currently on the market. It is estimated that between 34 million and 61 million Americans are obese, and the worldwide incidence of obesity is increasing by an estimated 1% per year.

Alcohol dependence is a complex and chronic disease which leads to adverse consequences affecting not only the patients but also their immediate family and has a profound economic burden on society. The annual costs to the United States are estimated to be US$185 billion for alcohol addiction. In 2005, the number of people affected by alcohol problems in the United States was estimated at 15.4 million.
