Ketosis: Helping Americans Regain Their Nutritional Balance

IT’S A MATTER OF NATIONAL SECURITY

  1. In April 2010, the U.S. military released the surprising statistics that an estimated 27 percent of our youth, ages 17 to 24, are too overweight to serve in the military.
  2. In 2013, 840 million people, or 11.5% of the world population, were over age 60. By 2050, this is expected to reach 21%. One in three seniors dies of Alzheimer’s or some form of dementia. It is estimated that the incidence of these diseases will triple by 2050.
  3. The estimated annual costs of obesity-related illnesses are a staggering $190.2 billion for health care4 and $153 billion in lost productivity5—a total of over $340 billion annually.
  4. It is estimated that 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, have diabetes. Approximately 1.25 million Americans have type 1 diabetes and 27.9 million Americans have Type 2 diabetes. Of that total, it is estimated that 8.1 million are undiagnosed. The national annual cost of diabetes in the U.S. in 2012 was more than $245 billion, up from $174 billion in 2007, and $69 billion in lost productivity.
  5. More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s.  It is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. Alzheimer’s disease is the most expensive condition in the nation. In 2014, the direct costs of Alzheimer’s totaled an estimated $214 billion, excluding home care where 15.5 million family and friends provided 17.7 billion hours of unpaid care to those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias—care valued at $220.2 billion.

These are just some of the statistics documenting the drain on the U.S. economy caused by failed nutrition and aging baby boomers.
