"About one-third of adults age 20 and older in this country are overweight, and about 35.7 percent are obese", according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If these patterns continue unabated, by 2030 adult obesity rates could exceed 60 percent in 13 states, slightly more than 50 percent in 39 states, and 44 percent in all 50 states, according to a report released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Trust for America’s Health in September 2012. Further, obesity could lead to more than 6 million cases of type 2 diabetes, 5 million cases of coronary heart disease and stroke, and more than 400,000 cases of cancer in the next two decades.

Thought was given to building a whole new website dedicated to nurses alone; however, arrangements with the major feature sources in this suite of tools would mean doubling on cost to bring you exactly the same content seen and experienced here. So, Nurses, explore the same features and enroll through the same gateway as the general adult public. We know that motivation comes from a sharing, encouraging community going through the same changes, so we provide your own blog and will add more useful tools over time. Once you engage in LivingSmart as a member they will be securely available to you.
