Renew Your Health and Your Life
Recent studies indicate that obesity has reached epidemic levels in the United States. In fact, some 60 million Americans – about 30 percent of the adult population 20 years of age or older – are obese. Each year, approximately 300,000 overweight people die from obesity-related complications. Obesity is second only to smoking as a contributor to illness and premature death.
There is hope. Weight loss surgery can help many people reach and maintain a healthy weight. Some patients lose more than 70 percent of their excess weight and keep it off for 16 to 18 years.
