The Economic Cost of Obesity

On this blog and elsewhere, we've often talked about the consequences of obesity from a PWS perspective or a general health perspective, and these views are obviously quite valid and important. Did you know that there are also huge economic cost resulting from obesity? Check out this video from a neat organization called Academic Earth (http://www.academicearth.org). Actually, while you're there, check out some of their other videos as well - they're short and informative!

Anyway, I would encourage you to check out this short video on thee economic cost of obesity. Would love to hear your thoughts!

Good video. I bet McDonald's makes a lot of money in my neighborhood. Half the traffic going north on my road turns into McDonald's.
