Technology Founders Commit to Combating U.S. Obesity
Date:12/27/2012

Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 27, 2012

According to a recently published Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report, by 2030, at least 44% of Americans in EVERY state will be obese. Additionally, obesity rates will top 60% in 13 states. Simply stated, more than four out of ten Americans nationwide and more than six out of ten in 13 states will be obese, not just overweight. Put another way, over 132 million Americans will be obese if we do not do something about it. The report also estimates that cases of diabetes, coronary heart disease, hypertension, and arthritis could increase ten times between 2010 and 2020 and then double again by 2030. The associated annual increase in the cost of health care will be between $48 billion and $66 billion per year between now and 2030 while the annual loss in productivity for the same period will cost us between $390 billion and $580 billion per year. Obesity is going to cost us trillions of dollars!

This crisis is unfolding in front of our eyes. Economic recovery from the recent recession may be short lived. The degrading health and ever expanding waistline of America threatens to lead us into both economic and national security crises. Health care costs will continue to explode, worker productivity will decrease, and the number of young people fit for military service will continue to dramatically shrink. Our status as the world’s leading power will be threatened, not necessarily through the actions of China, but by our own behaviors.

Entrepreneurial initiative, however, can reverse this negative trend. We are constantly reminded that entrepreneurial initiative is the key to economic growth and can help us surmount seemingly overwhelming challenges. In this crisis,
