Being health cost as a result of being obese?
Those of smokers.
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic found that people who are obese have an extra $1,850 in health costs, on average, a year compared with normal weight people. People who smoke, on the other hand, have $1,275 extra, on average, in health costs per year.
And for people who are morbidly obese, the costs are even higher, up to $5,500 a year.
The study was based on the health costs of 30,000 adult retirees and employees of the Mayo Clinic, all of whom had health insurance between 2001 and 2007.
The researchers noted that the extra costs by people who are obese went down after they took into account other health problems those people had.

Heading to Burger King and trying out their new Bacon Sundae…
And, yes, I said ‘Bacon Sundae’!
[via FitPerez] Dear America: Burger King Is Testing A Bacon Sundae
Mmmmm bacon sundaes??
That’s what Burger King is testing RIGHT NOW!
Looks like Denny’s might have to move over if they perfect the recipe!
For right now, though, a Nashville Burger King location is the only one with the new Bacon Sundae being offered.
Is WORSE for you than smoking a pack of cigarettes…
Think about THIS the next time you dare look at a group of people smoking outside with elicited derision…
As you stuff that fast food into your face: YOU are the bigger idiot.
Now, enjoy that bacon sundae, eh?
*shakes head sadly*
