Obesity remains one of the biggest epidemics in the United States. One in three adults are considered to be obese. Health care insurance spends over $40 Billion Dollars annually to treat conditions related to obesity. Additionally, it is estimated that $20 Billion Dollars are spent annually on personal health care. We are the fattest nation on Earth. How did we as a nation get to this alarming level?
