State of the Union Misses "Weight of the Union”

In his State of the Union address last night, President Barack Obama covered a robust list of issues including job creation, debt reduction, foreign policy, immigration reform and gun violence.

But, “the greatest threat to our nation,” was never mentioned, as noted by IHRSA member Anytime Fitness. Obesity is sky rocketing health care costs and depreciating the quality of life for millions of Americans.

Anytime Fitness’ replied with a blog post and infographic: Weight of the Union, an “examination of the macro-implications of obesity on the nation’s health.”
