CDC Maps Show 9 States With Adult Obesity Higher than 35%

Atlanta, GA...In 2018, nine states reported an adult obesity prevalence at or above 35 percent: Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, and West Virginia. This comes from the new obesity prevalence maps released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The maps break down adult obesity prevalence by race, ethnicity, and location based on self-reported height and weight data.





Highlights:

Obesity prevalence ranged from 23.0 percent in Colorado to 39.5 percent in Mississippi and West Virginia
Combined data from 2016-2018 showed notable differences by race and ethnicity:
2 states had an obesity prevalence of 35 percent or higher among non-Hispanic white adults
9 states had an obesity prevalence of 35 percent or higher among Hispanic adults
29 states and the District of Columbia had an obesity prevalence of 35 percent or higher among non-Hispanic black adults.
Adults with obesity are at increased risk for many serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and poorer mental health. Obesity costs the United States health care system over $147 billion a year. In addition, research has shown that obesity affects work productivity and military readiness.

Turning the tide on obesity will take a comprehensive effort by all parts of society. These maps help by showing where the burden of obesity is greatest. Factors like neighborhood design; access to healthy, affordable foods and beverages; and access to safe and convenient places for physical activity can all impact obesity.

    It's OK. Government run healthcare will solve this issue.

When I was a kid I used to think that skinny people were poor; now we understand that poverty and poor diet are closely associated with obesity.

      You do understand that most liberals are relatively wealthy and can afford to work out never mind buy good food. Please don't confuse us with welfare recipients which some of you term Democrats.

Cost of Health Care

The answer to the ever rising cost of health care is for the population to lose weight but what are the chances of that ever happening?

    Cheap Processed Food
    Posted on: 2019-09-14 14:34:02   By: Anonymous
     
    Nutrition starts with diet.
    Cheap over processed food is the American diet, but that is causing an epidemic of obesity.
    What you eat does matter.
    A diet of fatty processed foods, causes obesity, disease.
    In countries that adopted American processed foods, their health declined.
    It's time to reverse the dominance of the processed food companies to start on the road to less disease and death from processed foods.

    Sadly donnie has allowed a roll back of the school lunch program, to return to fatty processed factory foods.Big Ag is happy, but that makes Americans fat and unhealthy. Allowing kids in school to return to fatty over processed foods- corporate food shows once again donnie cares not for our people and kids future, it's always about corporate profit.

    Backward to incandescent bulbs, plastic straws, and processed foods in our schools, the corporates are in charge, not what the people need or want./

      Well said!
      All true.
      And, isn’t it interesting that the obese people are usually poor (and uneducated). In America, they are not starving, just ignorant about nutrition and eating clean, healthy foods. Their welfare checks do pay for a lot of processed high fat, salt, sugar foods, rather than bulk, fresh, whole food that they would need to use to cook a real balanced meal.

Wish we we're all as smart and caring as most wealthy Libtards! The real truth is that we are all going to die, processed or whatever, obesity is in part a choice, EBT cards don't just buy processed foods, you can eat healthy, but in a society where comfort is # 1, from alcohol, drugs, etc. what do you expect? There are plenty of fat or obese people on either side, when Libtards brag that they are more educated, thus wealthier, thus make better food choices, they should be happy that someone spent time with them teaching them good food choices! The Commies new how to get rid of obesity, starve the people to death

Look at crowd pics from the 60’s and before vs from the last 25 years. Also how many more fit people are living in a metropolitan area. Life expectancy has actually descended now. What happened? Walmart baby!
