A report titled F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future 2012 released by the Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) throws light at the exorbitant costs of obesity related preventable diseases in the United States in 2030.
As per the report, Americans will be spending over $66 billion on treatments for preventable obesity-related diseases in 2030. And the loss of economic productivity owing to obesity related medical concerns would range between a whooping $390 billion and $580 billion per annum in the same year.
The report further adds that the state of New Jersey will see its obesity-related medical care costs go up by almost a third in 2030.
If the current obesity growth rate persists, then by 2030, over two-third of Mississippi’s population would be obese.
Those suffering from obesity despite all attempts at weight loss through diet control and exercise can resort to weight loss surgery, alternatively known as obesity surgery, to say goodbye to excessive pounds. Americans can particularly benefit by traveling south of the border to Mexico for bariatric surgery, as the country provides plenty of options for easy-on-the-pocket surgery performed by highly competent weight loss surgeons at top notch hospitals.
Here is the detailed report on obesity costs in the USA in 2030.
