•    Paying more for clothes etc.

The results were much more shocking as the financial burden climbed higher when above factors were added to the basic cost. The annual load for women jumped to $9000 approx. and for men $7000 approx. per annum.
Professor Avi Dor, author of the study said in an interview that, “the result of the study is significant as per the data collected which has included both direct and indirect factors which cannot be totally specified in quantity.”

CEO of the Obesity Action Coalition, Joe Nadglowski quoted that, “Men/ women with higher fat content not only bear more medical and pharmaceutical cost but also fall prey to numerous non-medical costs due to low productivity at work or disability.” He added, “It is time for some serious intervention to curb increasing obesity rate and cure the existing approx. 1 billion Americans suffering from obesity.”
