Americans Spend More on Weight Loss Products Than It Would Take to End World Hunger

The US spends over $60 billion on weight loss products, yet it would only cost $30 billion to end world hunger.

Americans spend more than $60 billion annually to try to lose weight, on everything from paying for gym memberships and joining weight-loss programs to drinking diet soda.

Resolving the global food crisis would cost $30 billion a year according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.
