It is so sad and so preventable that half of American adults will be obese by 2030 and almost 100% by 2050. Not only is it sad that this preventable epidemic is destroying our health and our economy, I think that it is downright criminal when there are solutions like hypnosis for weight loss with Slender For Life™. Wouldn’t it be great if we really did reform healthcare? It’s really possible if we each take responsibility for our health. Long-lasting weight loss is possible with hypnosis.
164 Million Obese Adults by 2030
Web MD, August 25, 2011: Half of U.S. adults will be obese by 2030 if current trends continue, a new report shows.
About 1 in 3 adults in the U.S. are obese today. That figure will rise to half of American adults by 2030 if little is done to address the obesity epidemic, Columbia University researcher Claire Wang, PhD, said today at a news briefing in London. With those numbers will likely come higher rates of chronic diseases including diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and some types of cancer.
“Our projections find that rising obesity is going to result in increases in many of these chronic diseases which are disabling and expensive to treat,” Wang said. “We have to act fast.” Wang says expenditures to treat obesity-related diseases will cost the U.S. health care system up to an extra $66 billion each year by 2030, if the projections become reality.
If, as they predict, 164 million Americans are obese by 2030, Wang says the health care burden will include:
- An additional 8 million cases diabetes
- 6.8 million additional cases of heart disease and stroke
- Over 0.5 million cases of cancer
On page 12 of the updated 2nd edition of my book, Becoming Slender For Life, I write: “Americans are among the fattest people on earth. Now, an estimated twenty-one million Americans over 60 are obese, a 43 percent jump from 2000. A whopping 64% of all adults in the U.S. are either overweight or obese, according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. ‘Americans need to understand that overweight and obesity are literally killing us,’ warns Tommy Thompson, former Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Left unchecked, almost all Americans would be overweight by the year 2050.”
Let’s get serious and reform healthcare and help our nation get out of debt. If you don’t want to be part of the half of Americans that are overweight in 2030, then Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis is for you.
