Healthy Americans may account for only 8 percent of the population, but these 24 million people are the answer to saving America billions of dollars on unnecessary health care expenditures each year. More than 40% of premature deaths in the U.S. are a result of unhealthy behaviors like obesity and smoking. These habits are costing Americans $100 billion to $150 billion a year!

Take the steps to encourage your employees to make better lifestyle choices. Companies must acknowledge the health problems affecting their employees and implement programs to solve them.
