Recent data show that Americans consume, on average, more than 66 pounds of sugar per person per year. Some research shows that sugar can be more addictive than most drugs. So the more we eat, the more we crave, which leads to higher levels of obesity. Contrast how a health care plan might address this problem in its patient population using the medical model versus how a public health official would address this problem using the population health model. For this assignment, it will be important to use good research/citations to support your claims.
