America currently witnesses many healthcare challenges. One of those challenges is the rising rate of obesity. As a health risk obesity imposes both social and economic problems as it involves high treatment costs and results in productivity loss in the labor market. Obesity also leads to many other health issues such as blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases which in turn increases risks for the nation overall. To deal with the issue the US government has incorporated various interventions to control obesity which focuses on motivating people to adopt effective dietary practices and be physically active. The government has also implemented structured and all-inclusive healthcare policies covering all spheres of the community including schools local communities and workplaces to lessen health risks associated with obesity.
