Obesity in America Makes History

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

For the first time, the number of obese people in America surpasses the number who are overweight.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics 34 percent of Americans are obese, compared to 32.7 percent who are overweight and 6 percent are "extremely" obese.

One-third of Adults, or 72 million people, were considered obese in the government health study, which took place between 2005 and 2006. The obesity rate in America has more than doubled since 1980, but the number of overweight people has remained stable.

Childhood obesity is also reaching epic proportions. The CDC reported last May that 32 percent of U.S. children were overweight and 16 percent obese.

Could I make a word of advice? I’m sure youve got sth great here. But suppose you also included some references to a website that backs up what you were saying? Or even you may provide us with something to check out, something that might connect just what you’re mentioning, sth more tangible?

Certainly one of the challenges which people beginning a brand new on-line company face is that of obtaining guests to their internet site.

Great points…I would note that as someone who really doesn’t comment to blogs much (in fact, this may be my first post), I don’t think the term “lurker” is very flattering to a non-posting reader. It’s not your fault at all, but perhaps the blogosphere could come up with a better, non-creepy name for the 90% of us that enjoy reading the content .
