Health Care and Obesity

The Direct Link between Health Care and Obesity

According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention, annual health care expenses related to obesity and its consequences total over $150 billion in just United States and over $1 trillion worldwide as indicated by latest data released by World Health Organisation. These costs relate to both hidden and the explicit cost of a poor diet, ranging from reduced quality of life to increased instances of diabetes.

Research shows cooking “real” food at home is the best defense against obesity, not to mention that any meal you are likely to eat at home on average contains approximately 200 fewer calories that one you would eat in a restaurant. One must also not forget that you more likely to know exactly what went into any meal you would be preparing yourself at home.
