You've heard the scary statistics: Some 64 percent of Americans are either overweight or obese. Being obese increases your risk for a number of potentially deadly health conditions, including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke and colon cancer. The cost to U.S. states for medical care relating to both overweight and obesity was nearly $75 billion in 2003 -- and it's safe to say that number has only increased since. Obesity is clearly the country's leading health epidemic. What do you think about this problem -- and what should be done about it? If you're overweight, does it affect you and those you care about? We want to hear what you think.
