Most Americans are too fat. A new study shows three-quarters of men and two-thirds of women are now obese or overweight.
That is an increase of more than 10 percent since the 1990s.
“Obesity is not getting better. It’s getting worse, and it’s really scary. It’s not looking pretty,” Lin Yang, a post-doctoral research associate at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, told HealthDay News.
Researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine studied information on more than 15,000 men and women ages 25 and older between 2007 and 2012.
From that survey, they estimate 67.6 million Americans were obese in 2012 and 65.2 million were overweight.
