Today the new American obesity rates were released by The State of Obesity Organization – and it’s not pretty.
There are currently three states who have an adult obesity rate exceeding 35-percent. 22 states have exceeded the 30-percent mark. Every single state in America is above 20-percent. Things are continuing to get worse – and by “things,” I mean the health of our country.
Indiana, specifically, is at extreme risk. Our state has the 7th highest obesity rate in the country – 32.7%
In 1990, Indiana’s obesity rate was 13.3 percent. We’ve nearly tripled that number.
Look at our state by the numbers below:
It’s not just adults, our children are trending in the wrong direction as well. Indiana ranked 15th when it comes to childhood obesity – 14.3%
