Researchers at leading institutions, such as Duke University and Johns Hopkins, are uncovering just how much obesity affects the severity and frequency of workplace injuries and workers' comp claims.
This link to Duke will put you in touch with a write-up on their obesity and workers' comp study, as well as other links to obesity-related resources. For the abstract of the actual obesity study, visit the Web site for the Archives of Internal Medicine.
