    Hispanic/Latino and African American Entrants To ObamaCare Will SURGE MCSD IMPLANTS

    1- A Report From National Center for Health Statistics, part of the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention

    About 43 percent of Hispanics and 48 percent of blacks are obese, compared with 33 percent of whites and 11 percent of Asians.

    Obesity is measured using body mass index, or BMI, a calculation of weight and height.

    Using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, the research showed that the rates of obesity for men and women didn't significantly differ, except among non-Hispanic black adults where about 57 percent of women were obese compared with 37 percent of men. Adults ages 40 to 59 had the highest rates of obesity, followed by those 20 to 39 and then adults 60 and older, the report said.

    2- Therefore EXPECT, because of OBESITY, the above population to CONTIBUTE to MCSD IMPLANTS at a GREATER RATE than the CURRENT POPULATION.

    3- Since African-Americans PLUS Hispanic-and-Latino-Americans who will ENTER OBAMACARE as a percent of the general population EXCEED those percentages already insured WE CAN EXPECT THAT OBAMACARE's 40 MILLION ADDITIONAL insured will bring in a MUCH MORE Heart Disease than now. It will be MEASURED in MANY MORE MILLIONS.

    4- Therefore, we can conclude that the MCSD venue's GROWTH is now entering a SIGNIFICANT POINT of INFLECTION that will place MCSD as the PREMIERE GROWTH VENUE.
