No end to US obesity epidemic, forecast shows
Sadly why they cry the warning nothing will be done. The obesity is the outcome of an overly stressed "sick" society.
Today, just over a third of U.S. adults are obese. By 2030, 42 percent will be, says a forecast released Monday.
That's not nearly as many as experts had predicted before the once-rapid rises in obesity rates began leveling off. But the new forecast suggests even small continuing increases will add up.
"We still have a very serious problem," said obesity specialist Dr. William Dietz of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Worse, the already obese are getting fatter. Severe obesity will double by 2030, when 11 percent of adults will be nearly 100 pounds overweight, or more, concluded the research led by Duke University.
Instead of screaming, "there is a problem!" they need to realize the "solutions" are not working.
They can't keep yelling ALERT ALERT, while on the back end allowing the food corporations to pour the high fructose corn syrup into the food and the endless toxins. They can't keep blaming people on this hyper-responsibility fix, because blaming people isn't working either. They can't keep blaming people during the time of a failing economy. Reading the comments on that article, most are awful.It's a scary time to be fat.
