Mississippi the Fattest State

According to a new survey obesity rates are on the up across America with the state of Mississippi continuing to lead the way.

The survey was put together by the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and has some scarey findings.

The survey found that in 31 US states, 1 in 4 Americans are either overweight or obese.

In 23 states, the rate of obesity rose this past year, and so did the percentage of obese people over the age of 65, dBTechno reports.

It was found that the fattest states are Mississippi, with nearly one-third of adults, and 44.4 percent of children ages 10 to 17 considered obese. West Virginia, Alabama, and Tennessee all have rates just above 30 percent for adult obesity.

Thinnest residents reside in the states of Colorado, at 18.9 percent; Massachusetts at 21.2 percent; and Connecticut at 21.3 percent.

Children obese or overweight weigh in at 30 percent nationwide. Overweight and obese adults account for 32.5 percent of the U.S population. Obesity along among adults exceeds 25 percent in 31 states.

By comparison, in 1991, not one state had an obesity rate above 20 percent, InjuryBoard.com reports.

Reacting obesity rates rising James Marks, the foundation’s senior vice president said: “The only good news is that the pace of the epidemic growth is lessening. We’re still getting fatter, but maybe a little bit more slowly than before,” eFitnessNow reports.
