The Health Scare in America

Approximately 4% of the U.S. population incurs 60% of the country’s medical claims.

The United States spends a higher percentage of its GDP on health care than any other industrialized nation on the planet.

The United States has the highest overweight and obesity rates of any other industrialized nation on the planet.

The increase in weight is linked to an increase in the production of diseases of affluence such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and other lifestyle-related maladies.

Take Control and Manage Your Health
Getting a health screening is the first step in monitoring and managing your health. If you do have significant risk factors such as high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, and/or obesity, then we encourage you to talk with your medical provider and consider applying for the spring Naturally Slim class.
