Overweight costing California $22 billion per year

We all imagine California as a state full of health fanatics – the opposite could not be more true, according to a new

report which says that overweight and obesity is costing the state over $22 billion per year.  The report was commissioned by

the California Dept of Health Services.

Over 50% of all Californians are classed as either overweight or obese, says the report.  California is rapidly climbing up

the league tables of fat states.  Officials say the ‘problem’ is getting worse.
