The 2008 CDC Health Insurance survey showed that 36% of all adults were considered totally inactive. 37% of all adults were at a healthy weight, 35% were overweight, and 27% were obese with obesity percentages even higher in the Midwest and South. Obesity and high BMI have been directly linked to numerous diseases including cancer, heart disease, and diabetes which all result in higher healthcare costs to employer and employee.
