Overweight people eat $22 billion of the budget of California

 article about California
Every year the state of California has to spend $22 billion to provide the needed medical care for overweight people. Over 50% of Californians are overweight or obese and the per cent is still growing.

The report created by California Dept of Health Services says that if all the people lost just 5% of their body weight and excercised just 5% more, the yearly costs for health care would decrease by 6 billion dollars.

California, like USA overally, has more fast food restaurants than any other country in the world.
