The United States is experiencing an obesity epidemic with 2 in 3 individuals being overweight or obese. Approximately 45 million Americans diet each year, spending about $33 billion on weight-loss products.

The total costs of the obesity is as high as $147 billion a year, which is more than the direct-cost of cancer care in the U.S. Nearly 65% of dieters return to their pre-dieting weight within three years, and only 5% of people who lose weight on a crash diet will keep the weight off.

Only 3% of adults in the United States eat a heart healthy 0% cholesterol diet. What are the public health consequence of this? About 56% of the U.S .adult population have high blood cholesterol levels and the second most prescribed class of medication in the U.S. is cholesterol lowering medications.
