Dr. Barry Sears, bestselling author of The Zone and Founder of MedWell123.com, says corn and soybean subsidies are a fundamental cause of obesity and mounting weight-related healthcare costs in USA.

The problem lies with America's continually subsidizing of corn and soybean production that has resulted an oversupply of cheap refined carbohydrates and cheap vegetable oils that when combined give rise to increased diet-induced inflammation. This inflammation activates the genes people in people who are genetically predisposed to gain weight with relative ease.

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 22, 2009

"Obesity looms as a primary cause of the growing financial problems for the nation due to ever rising healthcare costs from increased numbers of people with weight-related problems from diabetes to heart disease and more," said Dr. Barry Sears.

Dr. Sears, author of The New York Times #1 bestseller, The Zone, and founder of MedWell Foods addresses the obesity problem as primarily caused by diet-induced inflammation on gene expression in his most recent book, Toxic Fat.

"If you're fat, it's not your fault," said Dr. Sears. "The problem lies with America's continually subsidizing of corn and soybean production that has resulted an oversupply of cheap refined carbohydrates and cheap vegetable oils that when combined give rise to increased diet-induced inflammation. This inflammation activates the genes people in people who are genetically predisposed to gain weight with relative ease."

Dr. Sears' warning about growing concerns about the accelerating growth of the obesity epidemic is echoed in recent public reports, such as from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention saying nearly one third of Americans are obese, and the Trust for America's Health that stated "adult obesity rates increased in 23 states and did not decrease in a single state in the past year."

"It would be less costly to simply eliminate the $20 billion in annual government support for corn and soybean production than to fix the health problems they cause," Dr. Sears explained.

Dr. Sears maintains that the "diet-induced inflammation is the underlying cause of a wide range of chronic diseases ranging from obesity to diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and neurological disorders."

To overcome this fundamental agribusiness problem, Dr. Sears set out several years ago to develop a new food technology change the hormone responses of the primary foods that Americans like to eat (pizza, pasta, and pastries). These new technologies lead to the formation of MedWell Foods in 2006.

"MedWell products are made with one gram of fat for every two grams of protein and three grams of carbohydrates, or 1-2-3 to control insulin levels which play a critical role in the development of dietary-induced inflammation. More importantly, this new technology also enhances the release of various hormones from the gut that suppress appetite," Dr. Sears said.

"This new generation of MedWell healthy comfort foods include breads, pasta, pizza, bagels, rolls, chips, brownies, granola and cookies that suppress appetite and control inflammation with the least amount of effort by the individual," Dr. Sears added.

Available at http://www.medwell123.com or through the MedWell customer service center at 866-633-7898, MedWell 1-2-3 foods arrive fresh on a weekly basis to make breakfasts, lunches, dinners and the snacks for the next seven days at a cost of $10 per day.

"Substituting the MedWell equivalent for the foods that people like to eat, you ensure a dramatic increase in appetite suppression along with silencing those genes that would otherwise promote rapid wet gain," said the bestselling author.

His books have sold more than 5 million copies in the United States and have been translated into 22 languages, providing a global foundation for the distribution of MedWell 1-2-3™ food products.
