Morbid obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. A staggering 68 percent of adults over the age of 20 are overweight (with a Body Mass Index [BMI] of 25–29.9), and more than 35 percent are obese (BMI of 30 or higher), according to an ongoing CDC-supported study. A number of serious health problems are linked to obesity including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea.
