About Washington

Washington offers a diverse culture. As a result, many towns in Washington are centered around industries such as fishing, timber, and agriculture. Because of the remarkable natural beauty of this state, the outdoors plays a large role in the lives of most of Washington’s residents.

Recently, the state added tourism to its economy. Seattle, in particular, has emerged as one of America’s top cities. Seattle has a thriving music scene that has brought us musicians like Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana. Other key places to note in Washington are Walla Walla and Spokane, which are historical reminders of the state’s creation.

Washington Obesity Statistics 2016

According to The State of Obesity: Better Policies for a Healthier America, Washington ranks 32nd place in the highest obesity rate in the United States.

Obesity is becoming a major health issue in both developed and developing countries. Obesity has related comorbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, cancers, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, and sleep apnea. Obesity is linked to reduced life expectancy and a leading cause of preventable deaths.

The purpose of our hosting these seminars is to spread awareness of an affordable option for those struggling with obesity. Bariatric surgery in Tijuana cost is extremely low when compared to those in the United States and Canada. The surgeons with Mexico Bariatric Center are specialized experts in weight loss surgery, focusing a limited number of procedures performed per day to curb complications. Mexico Bariatric Center has maintained a complication rate below 0.5% for the same reason.
