Losing Weight – By Any Means Necessary

More than one-third of the US population is now officially obese (a body-mass index over 30) – a ratio that has tripled since 1960.[1] Meanwhile, the number of morbidly obese people has risen 350% in the past 3 decades.[5] Obesity contributes to many of the country’s serious health issues, from coronary disease, to diabetes to cancer, which results in close to 112,000 preventable deaths[2] while eating up 21% of US medical spending each year.[3] As big as US citizens are getting, the roster of companies joining the fight against obesity is also growing, with one weight-loss drug, Qysmia, expected to reach $2 billion in annual sales by 2017.[4] Whether companies are selling pharmaceuticals, surgeries or diet plans, fighting fat is literally big business.
