The Obesity Epidemic

The Obesity Epidemic

In 1990, obese adults made up less than 15 percent of the U.S. population. By 2010, that rate had increased to 25 percent. Fast forward to today, and about two out of three U.S. adults are overweight or obese. Another alarming fact is the prevalence of obese and overweight children and adolescents. Early obesity not only increases the chance of adult obesity, it also increases the likelihood of cardiovascular disease and heart disease in adulthood. According to statistics, one out of six children and adolescents are either overweight or obese. Without a doubt, obesity is now an epidemic. While the solution seems simple with just consuming less calories and cranking up regular exercise, it’s not simple at all. Dr. Donna H. Ryan of the Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge attributes the following factors as some of the causes in the obesity epidemic: increased availability of fast and affordable foods, decreased physical activity and possible changes in the bacteria in the digestive track. Big meals, red meat, unhealthy fats, refined grains and sugary drinks have become the traditional western style meal. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, Americans are eating less whole grains, veggies and fruits.
