Obesity Levels off in the United States   



Obesity Levels off in the United States

 
According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than a third of adults and 17 percent of children were obese in 2009 to 2010. This was the same with the results since 2003.

There are no increases on the number of obese adults but there is also no drop in the numbers. In recent years, there were slight increases among white, black and Hispanic men as well as among black and Hispanic women. The numbers have leveled off but there’s no indication that obesity is on the decline in any group.

Industry insiders suggest that fast food and busy schedules are the main culprits to the steady level of obesity in the United States. People should watch what they eat and exercise at least 30 minutes each day.

In 2009 to 2010, more than 78 million adults and 13 million children from the age of 2 to 19 were found to be obese. It has plateaued at a high level, which has caused some concern among health workers. The recent results of the CDC were posted online in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It focused on the prevalence of obesity, which is a body mass index of at least 30.
