  • Obesity, outside of specific genetic issues, is very manageable and in a majority of cases preventable.

  • Obesity will surpass smoking as the number one preventable disease in the U.S. within four years.

  • 80% of African-American and 38% of Hispanic females were found to be overweight and/or obese.

  • 22-27% of the U.S. population eats "daily" in a fast-food restaurant.
