The most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC, December 2012) report that more than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) are obese. Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death. Poor diet and physical inactivity- leading to obesity and its consequences- are poised to overtake tobacco as the leading actual cause of death in the U.S. As obesity has risen, so have incidence and prevalence of associated costly chronic conditions. More than 133 million Americans- 45% of the total population- has at least one chronic disease. Chronic diseases kill more than 1.7 Million Americans yearly. Obesity is growing faster than any previous public health issue our nation has faced. If current trends continue, 103 million American adults will be considered obese by 2018. The U.S. is expected to spend $344 billion on health care costs attributable to obesity in 2018 if rates continue to increase at their current levels. Obesity-related direct expenditures are expected to account for more than 21 percent of the nation's direct health care spending in 2018. If obesity levels were held at their current rates, the U.S. could save an estimated $820 per adult in health care costs by 2018- a savings of almost $200 billion dollars.
