Obesity Level At High Rate



Obesity levels have remained flat over the last year in 49 of 50 of the United States, following nearly 30 years of increases. The report, F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America's Future 2013, was put together by the Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The flattening of rates "probably reflect genetic phenotypes and perhaps some change in caloric density of food choices and physical activity," George Blackburn, MD, PhD, of the Harvard Medical School division of nutrition told MedPage Today.
