The Latest Statistics on America’s Obesity Epidemic

The Latest Statistics on America’s Obesity Epidemic

The recent IHRSA/ASD Obesity/Weight Control Report publishes “real” research statistics on America’s growing obesity epidemic. These alarming statistics reveal a dangerously overweight U.S. population.

Obesity in proliferating in the United States: 3.8 million people are over 300 pounds, over 400,000 people (mostly males) carry over 400 pounds and the average adult female weighs an unprecedented 163 pounds!

Until now, the publication of the most crucial and powerful statistics on obesity -- raw bodyweight averages for the American population -- had scrupulously been avoided by the most faithful keepers of the public health record, the CDC. While the CDC has the most comprehensive and widely disseminated public health statistics on dieting, weight loss research and obesity in America, their focus on the polite abstraction of Body Mass Index (BMI) rather than actual bodyweight has hindered America’s war on obesity.

The National Center for Health statistics has been tracking America’s obesity problem for over four decades. The following statistics support the growing concern regarding the obesity problem in America.

-- Between 1962 and the year 2000, the number of obese Americans grew from 13% to an alarming 31% of the population.
-- 63% of Americans are overweight with a Body Mass Index (BMI) in excess of 25.0.
-- 31% are obese with a BMI in excess of 30.0.
-- Childhood obesity in the United States has more than tripled in the past two decades.
-- According to the U.S. Surgeon General report obesity is responsible for 300,000 deaths every year.

Saddest thing about this... most schools will not even allow the use of the term "obese" anymore because it seems derogatory and may "hurt the childs self esteem". So we are stuck trying to fix a problem we can't even point out as a problem. What is the world coming to with all this PC BS

I still think BMI is a stupid way to calculate fattness. it only take height and weight into effect. it doesn't factor in muscle and fat.

This is true. Calculating true BMI requires calipers measuring different points on your body, or water weighing.

Bunch of bullshit. But, America is still fat.

Feed kids unprocessed foods and you will virtually eliminate the problem going forward. Keep feeding them (and yourself) shit 'food' and this will only get worse.

I really don't think you should be calling kids fat or obese. That really will be hurting their feelings.

You SHOULD be kicking the parents in the arse for allowing them to get that way. (Though they are probably big themselves).

Absolutely the best idea I have heard. I oten wonder why someone has not founded a "healthy insurance" basically insuring healthy people. Should be pretty cheap!!! I am sure someone would have a problem with it and sue, but it might be worth it!!!

This has actually come up over and over again in regards to the "national health care" system. Would the gov't penalize you for weight? smoking? excessive drinking? etc.

If I understand it correctly, it would be illegal under most states' insurance regulations.

but taco bell is so much cheaper then healthy food.

Healthier food costing more is one main issue I see with this problem. 2nd being the parents not teaching kids about playing outdoors.

Last week, there was a couple riding 2 up on a bike. The guy could've been about my size- 5'6"/120. I swear that chick hanging six inches off either side of the bike behind him had to be 200lbs.

F-ing Hideous!

Fat chicks scare me. I'm afraid they're gonna try to eat me when they haven't had their McNugget fix for the day.
