1 doctor agrees

In brief: Probably..obesity

Unfortunately, america has the most number of obese people in the world and this is is still increasing rapidly, especially in the young kids, which will cause trouble in their joints as they get older. I anticipate that the cost of osteoarhritis will approach of heart disease some day, maybe more.
Stay tuned! it is sad.
