The Fattening Of America: Obesity Rates Hit Record High, Doctors Blame Cars & Poverty
74% of American men are either overweight or Obese (up from 63% in 1994) according to a new report using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
As MSN reports, the researchers exclaim “obesity is not getting better. It’s getting worse, and it’s really scary. It’s not looking pretty,” warning that America’s “car dependence” and poverty (“processed and fast foods are less expensive”) are to blame and America’s weight problem is an issue that will not be resolved through a purely medical solution.
