We’ve known for some time that Americans don’t live as long as people in many other industrialized countries. A new study suggests that obesity is a big cause of this disparity. All the money spent on diabetes, blood pressure, and heart disease CAN’T undo the problems casued by eating processed foods (high in sugar/salt/fat) and physical inactivity.
My health issues (high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, sleep apnea) were part of my motivation to lose weight. I hope to live longer and better!
