Link Between Health Insurance & Obesity

by admin on July 23, 2009

I enjoyed reading this and thought I would share.


A new N.B.E.R. working paper finds a link between health insurance and obesity, and suggests that the better insured you are, the fatter you’re likely to be. We already knew that people with health insurance consume more healthcare resources than the uninsured; it appears they’re consuming more calories, too.


When I first read it I thought it would be the other way around, because I thought if you have Health Insurance then you most likely like to take care of yourself but Iwas wrong. Then when I thought about it again, makes sense you need to keep yourself healthy without insurance.
