America’s waistlines are expanding at such a rapid rate that one in every two adults will be obese by they year 2030. TrekDesk Treadmill Desk urges Americans to join their Movement Revolution to reverse the trend.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 19, 2012 Ask any American about the greatest threats to their nation and you get a laundry list ranging from unemployment, poor schools, drugs, illegal immigration to terrorism. Not on the list and not once mentioned in the past year’s political debates lies the largest looming threat to America’s security, economy and overall quality of life: obesity. According to a new report from the Trust for America’s Health and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation 50% of American adults will be obese by the year 2030. TrekDesk Treadmill Desk hopes to expand its Movement Revolution to prevent this dire prediction from becoming reality.
Will this prediction become reality? Most experts agree that if we stay on our current path that it will but hold out hope that specific interventions can change the dynamic in short order. While Americans seem to be addicted to a multi-billion diet industry little attention has been paid to their lack of activity.
