    Study: Thicker Waistlines Equal Thinner Wallets - Occupational Hazards
    Obesity not only affects workers' physical health but also their financial health, according to a new study that found medical and pharmacy costs rose steadily for employees with above-normal body weight.

    The study, led by Feifei Wang, Ph.D., of the University of Michigan, calculated the body mass index (BMI) of nearly 36,000 autoworkers and their spouses to analyze the relationship between body weight and health care costs. For those who started at a BMI of 25 - the lower end of the 'overweight' range - health costs rose steadily along with BMI.
