Americans Might Become Heavier and Sicker by 2030

If health habits don’t change for America soon, more than half of the nation could be suffering from obesity and chronic diseases, says a new report.

A report released last week by The Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, entitled “F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future,” revealed that by 2030, most Americans could be diagnosed with obesity amongst many other health complications such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. This alone could cost the US up to $66 billion in healthcare and upwards of $500 billion due to deficient economic productivity. While the report seems grim, researchers say Americans can change this outcome through lifestyle and diet adjustments. If states were to lower their average Body Mass Index by just five-percent by 2030, suggests the report, the nation would be well on its way toward reducing obesity rates. Recently, a new study announced that successful long-term weight management was due largely in part to a wholesome plant-based diet.
