I have some minor issues with the site above but for the most part, obesity is a problem and I have agreed to post this on my website. I encourage you to look at it and the rest of the PublicHealth website at http://www.publichealth.org/ . Click on the Public Health Icons above to go to their page on obesity.

Brandon from Public Health says: "The Harvard School of Public Health estimates that obesity accounts for over 20% of America's healthcare related expenses at about $190 billion. The cost in lives is equally staggering - 18% by Columbia University's estimates. With so much at stake, continuing efforts to educate the public about obesity is paramount to fighting this threat to our individual and collective health."

Please look at the other sites I have listed too.
