Obese People Miss Work More

Posted Dec 18 2008 8:14pm
Obese employees miss more work, and they have much higher weight-related medical expenses than folks who maintain a health weight, a study of 20,000 employees reveals.
In fact, an obese person 30 or more pounds over a healthy weight has to pay an additional $460 to $2,500 per person on medical bills.

See mercola.com's interesting post about this and also this USA Today story, which tells more about the study.
