Researchers map variations in death rates, causes of death across the US

In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association researchers found wide variation in death rates and causes of death among different regions.

Researchers used data from the Global Burden of Disease study, which is compiled from “various data sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys and state inpatient databases. “The top five risk factors – diet, obesity, elevated blood pressure, tobacco and physical inactivity – explain an awful lot of the differences across states.

 

The top five risk factors sound AWFULLY familiar to anyone who is involved in bariatric care. 

Death is the final endpoint. 

No one is in a hurry to get there. 

The five factors above represent the fast lane to getting there.

Bariatric surgery has been repeatedly PROVEN to help to slow this progression and reduce your risk to the same level as everyone else.

Relief and an explanation is a phone call away.
