Costs of Overweight & Obesity

Obesity costs companies $12 billion each year because of health care costs, according to one estimate by the Washington Business Group on Health, an employer group that lobbies on health policy.

Obesity is a risk factor for chronic diseases like diabetes, and is receiving heightened attention as the number of overweight Americans continues to increase. Employers are faced with lost productivity, higher prescription drug costs to treat weight-related ailments and more hospital stays.

A recent 2003 study found that obesity and related illnesses accounted for as much as $78.5 billion of the nation's $1.5 trillion health care tab, which has been estimated at $1.5 trillion.
