I was reading the NY Times the other day and was astounded by the facts and figures of women who have a BMI greater than 30 and are pregnant.
The cost for delivering a baby for obese women is $200,000 as opposed to women that are in the normal, healthy range which is $13,000. Hospitals are having to buy bigger beds, chairs and equipment for the obese. This is just lunacy. People have to get control of their lives. It is all about disipline and food education. Something has to be done. This is so embarrassing for our country......you don't see this happening any where else in the world.
