November 17, 2015
"America’s obesity problem just keeps getting bigger.
A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that 37.7% of U.S. adults were obese as of 2014. That’s up from 34.9% two years earlier.
From 2011 through 2014, an estimated 36.5% of Americans ages 20 and older had a body mass index of at least 30, putting them over the threshold for obesity. The prevalence was higher for women (38.3%) than for men (34.3%), the CDC data show."
