The Cost of Being Overweight
Here’s a cracking info-graphic for you that nicely details just how much the obesity epidemic is costing American employees. The fascinating part for me is the obesity costs dwarfs those of smoking an alcohol, in fact, it’s even more than then two combined! I wonder just how long things can continue like this before something gives.
The irony is that sales in dieting paraphernalia (all of it well marketed waste of time crap) is also booming – we’ve never spent so much on trying to be thin and yet we’ve never been fatter – go figure!
