Research shows obesity carries costs

Researchers at George Washington University say the annual cost of being obese is nearly $5,000 for women and nearly $3,000 for men.

The costs are linked to such things as employee sick days and lost productivity.

Doctors also suggest that larger women earn less than skinnier women. But there is little wage difference for men.
