Obese Americans Spend Far More on Health Care

A study found that obese Americans annually spend about 42 percent more on health care than normal-weight Americans...so I wonder how much of the 8%/year healthcare inflation is explained by this fact alone?

  1. It's insane that a study was needed for this, isn't this already a basic known fact? We are getting more and more obese, check out may latest post

  2. Speak for yourself on that "we are getting" part, my friend. ;) Although unless you have changed, you are leaner than I--must be those obesity-resistant French genes!
