Almost 10 Percent of U.S. Medical Costs Tied to Obesity
Date:7/27/2009

d raise revenues that can be used to fight the obesity epidemic.

The upshot of Monday's meeting is that stemming the obesity epidemic is going to take a societal effort.

"Reversing obesity is not going to be done successfully with individual effort," Frieden said. "We did not get to this situation over the past three decades because of any change in our genetics or any change in our food preferences. We got to this stage of the epidemic because of a change in our environment and only a change in our environment again will allow us to get back to a healthier place," he said.
