Staggering Statistic: The Real Cost of Obesity in America

The price tag on the food you buy isn't the only way to measure its cost.

When you take into account the possible consequences and potential medical bills caused by years of eating processed, chemical-leaden foods, the case for purchasing organic, wholesome food makes itself. Spending a little extra on quality food is by far the most economical way to care for your health.

Case in point: The projected cost of obesity in 2030. If the rate of obesity stays constant in the next 15 years, the medical costs of this epidemic could grow to $66 billion.

Thankfully, there's now a way to buy healthy food that fits within every budget. Thrive Market wants to revolutionize our food system, so we're all working toward better health.
