Sep 17 - Number of states with high obesity rate nearly doubles since 2018: CDC
 

 
The number of states with an obesity rate of at least 35 percent has nearly doubled in two years, with continuing racial and ethnic disparities, according to research released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Sixteen states reported last year that at least 35 percent of their adult residents are obese, an increase from the 12 considered to have high obesity prevalence in 2019 and nine in 2018, CDC analysis released on Wednesday said.

Delaware, Iowa, Ohio and Texas were the four new additions to the list of states with the higher obesity rate this year. They joined Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia.

This represents a drastic change in about a decade, as the health policy organization Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) pointed out in a press release that no state went beyond that 35 percent threshold as recently as 2012.

Every state documented more than 20 percent of its adult population as having obesity, with the Midwest and the South seeing the highest rates at 34.1 percent compared to the West and Northeast.

The analysis identified Mississippi, West Virginia and Alabama as having the highest adult obesity rates at 39.7 percent, 39.1 percent and 39 percent, respectively.

Having obesity puts adults at a higher risk of enduring serious health issues such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, several cancers and worse mental health. The analysis indicates that a growing amount of the U.S. population is more susceptible to such illnesses, which could put stress on the health system.

The research also highlighted the racial and ethnic disparities related to obesity. Thirty-five states and District of Columbia reached an obesity rate of at least 35 percent for Black residents, and 22 states hit that rate for Hispanic residents.

In the meantime, just seven states had an obesity prevalence of at least 35 percent among white residents, and none reached that rate among Asian residents.

The “urgent problem” of the obesity epidemic “worsened” during the pandemic, TFAH President and CEO J. Nadine Gracia said in a release that noted eating habits, food insecurity, lack of physical activity and high stress contributed to the rise.

A Harris Poll from February concluded that 42 percent of American adults experienced weight gain since the beginning of the pandemic, with an average gain of 29 pounds.

The CDC and TFAH are calling for the rising obesity rate and disparities in the country to be addressed, which the federal agency said “will take a sustained, comprehensive effort from all parts of society.”

“We will need to acknowledge existing health disparities and health inequities and address the social determinants of health such as poverty and lack of health care access if we are to ensure health equity,” the CDC said in its research.

Before we even get to mentioning those organizations....shouldn't we be pointing out how the people eating themselves into death here in America don't care about themselves?

Your party used to say they were the party of personal accountability after all

Its one thing to be "eating yourselves to death" but its another things when companies are putting things in food that cause fat build up as well.

I believe the obesity in this country is a two way street. Chemicals in foods + cheap fast food. Etc.

Its more than likely we agree here.

I agree, we could bring up things like systemic oppression against poor whites and communities of color(Where obesity is soaring) that lead to things like food deserts(or lack of access to quality options), terrible access to quality healthcare, horrible infrastructure, terrible support for education and so on that leads to the herd falling into these types of situations but judging from your comments in the past on here I don't think you want to really go there

Smart a*s response on my part aside, lol:
We live in a nation where gluttony is the norm and it's always been that way.

People in America want to be fat, and when anyone tries to suggest they shouldn't be fat you're said to be shaming them or preaching to them.

It's crazy how telling someone 'hey don't eat that big mac bro, it's not good for you, how about a salad?" is seen as offensive when that Big Mac is literally physically destroying their insides

I agree with every single thing you wrote.

Sadly part of that is the excess of political correctness. I come from the times before that, as I know you do. I know I'm a big guy and I'm working on it. But it seems like so many people these days, instead of saying like "Yeah I'm a fat fu*k and need work." They're out here saying like "Big Is beautiful" and its like...no bi*ch. Big is not beautiful. Big is deadly. Big Is ugly. I don't wish death on anyone big, and I wouldn't necessarily call someone ugly to their face n sh*t, but we also need to get past this hurt feelings bullsh*t. Like if you're big...own that sh*t, and either fix it or die early. But please stop normalizing or beautifying obesity.

I 100000000% agree.

I had a discussion with a friend of mine whose a huge Lizzo fan for example. And she got mad when I asked her what happens to all of the young obese girls that listen to Lizzo when they hit their 30s and diabetes, heart disease and so on set in? Black women die from heart disease more than anyone else in America, that's a fact and it's the #1 k*ller of black women...

What happens when Lizzo uses some of those millions she has to go lose weight/have some surgery like other celebrities who started out fat(Monique for example) and the people who follow her - but don't have anywhere near the same access to quality healthcare as her start to develop issues?

Its insane how telling someone to eat better and live a cleaner life so they can be here for as long as possible is seen as "Fat Shaming"...I hate that sh*t.

People have gotten so addicted to their bad habits that they've now normalized them, think they're positives, and will go to war with anyone telling them 'Hey...thats actually not good for you'

You have to look between the numbers tho …black people are usually identified as obese by that outdated chart when they not fat at all…

A women with no waist but with big thighs and arse will measure obese

A shorter male who works out …develops muscle no stomach will register obese ..

I know a lot of my fellow skinny muthaphuckas who eat like sh*t but have a fast metabolism…you can’t tell me they healthier than lizzo lol

Bro I got a homie whose skinnier than Ellen(chick on tv lol) and I've literally watched this man smoke a blunt and eat 2 boxes of honey buns, a burger, and wash it all down with a coca cola in a 45 minute time span and thats NORMAL for him. His fridge looks like the candy aisle at the grocery store, and dude won't gain a pound.

He once weighed himself one week, ate like absolute horse sh*t and weighed himself again and he'd lost about 5 or 6 pounds and he doesn't work out. he sits on his a*s all day coding at his job and inhaling bullsh*t.

Dude has those amazon prime subscriptions dropping sodas and sweets off at his house every other week even
