"Obesity is the fastest growing cause of illness and death in the United States and it deserves more attention than any other epidemic.

The health implications in a country where two out of three adults are obese or overweight and the number of overweight kids has jumped by 50 percent in the decade are severe enough to threaten national security."
Dr. Richard Carmona  (U.S. Surgeon General)

"The biggest problem we face in America is not terrorism. The biggest health problem we're facing is obesity,"
Dr. Julie Gerberding,
(Head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
