News Reports on Gabe Economics of Obesity Report

Several news outlets, including Channel 5 (WABI), the Boston Globe website and the Bangor Daily News carried an Associated Press report on a study by UMaine economist Todd Gabe about the current and projected future costs of obesity in Maine, particularly as obese children transition into obese adults. He estimates the cost over the next 20 years will be about $1.2 billion, unless something is done to encourage healthier lifestyles and weight loss.
