The Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of the USDA stated, "putting this knowledge (of the Dietary Guidelines) into practice is difficult. More than 90 million Americans are affected by chronic diseases and conditions that compromise their quality of life and well-being. Overweight and obesity, which are risk factors for diabetes and other chronic diseases, are more common than ever before. To correct this problem, many Americans must make significant changes in their eating habits and lifestyles."
