Nikhil V. Dhurandhar, PhD on Obesity

Submitted by Emily on

Obesity is already taking a toll on our society, both on personal and economic levels. More than one-third (about 35.7%) of American adults are affected by obesity, a serious disease that is tied to more than 30 other health conditions, including heart disease and cancer.

Kenneth Thorpe on Obesity

Despite many of the problems developing around the world, America continually ranks among the top – the most obese, the most chronic disease with some of the most costly healthcare. By the year 2030, nearly half of America’s elderly population will be obese. Clearly it is time to treat obesity as the national health crisis that it is.

Teddy Roosevelt once said, "Do what you can with what you have where you are."  What a perfect answer to this question!   

What we can do is to use this time to make sure we are getting our needs met and saving ourselves as much money as possible.  Open enrollment empowers us by giving us not only options, but also complete information about each of those options. We should use that power to our advantage by choosing the plan that works best for us.  That's the Number 1 thing we can do.
