BUT A NEW STUDY ACTUALLY GIVES THE PROBLEM A DOLLAR FIGURE.
DOCTOR PHILIP GREENLAND WAS PART OF A NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY TEAM THAT FOLLOWED MORE THAN 15-THOUSAND PEOPLE FROM MIDDLE AGE TO THEIR SENIOR YEARS AND INTO MEDICARE. WHAT THEY FOUND IS A DIRECT LINK BETWEEN THE RISE IN WEIGHT AND HEALTH CARE COSTS.

03:40 (SOT-Dr. Philip Greenland/Northwestern University)

body weight in middle age was very much related to healthcare costs in older age. :07

(GFX)

A PERSON OF NORMAL WEIGHT COSTS MEDICARE AN AVERAGE OF 67-HUNDRED DOLLARS A YEAR. BUT THE FIGURES SHOOT UP FOR PEOPLE WHO STAYED OVERWEIGHT FROM MIDDLE AGE INTO OLDER AGE. THE SEVERLY OBESE HAD EXPENDITURES OF 13-THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR.... ALMOST DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCALE.

AVERAGE ANNUAL MEDICARE EXPENDITURES Normal Weight $ 6,714 Overweight $ 8,021 Obese $ 9,870 Severly Obese $13,008

He is joined on the first team by linebacker Darryl Tapp, a junior from Chesapeake. He was the leading vote-getter among defensive linemen in the league. Also on the first team from the Hokies is place kicker Brandon Pace. He was 21-for-26 on field goals his 105 points leave him three away from a new school single-season mark for kickers. The final first team selection from Tech is cornerback Jimmy Williams - who has four interception this season including one he returned for a TD.
