Obesity Trends: The Numbers Behind an Urgent Fight

November 29, 2011 By: office 1 Comment

We all know now that obesity in the United States is considered to be an epidemic, and is also on the rise. A recent article in the New York Times outlines some of the more shocking statistics our country faces if these trends continue as they have been since the 1970s.

By 2020, three of every four Americans will be overweight or obese if the trends continue. By 2030, there could be 65 million more obese adults in the United States than in 2010, according to the epidemiologist Dr. Y. Claire Wang and her colleagues at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.

If these predictions actually come true, it would mean 8 million more cases of diabetics, 6.8 million more cases of atherosclerotic heart disease and stroke and more than 500,000 more cases of cancer. Obviously, this would also impact health costs in our country.
