The new infograph, titled “ America, Land of the... Obese?” explores the obesity epidemic in the country.
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/19/2013 -- PhentermineWars.com recently released an infograph on the obesity epidemic in Amercia. The point of the infograph was to educate consumers on the rising rates of obesity in the country, and how the rates are continually getting higher.
According to the Surgeon General, obesity today is officially an epidemic - labeled a disease, and arguably the most pressing health problem we face, costing the healthcare system an estimated $90 billion a year.
PhentermineWars says that in today's chaotic and fast-paced world, we’re stuck in a health rut of hyper-speed and burnouts. People push their bodies to the brink of neglect, rather than replenishing themselves with adequate rest, physical activity and nutrition. When not paid attention to correctly, these three factors contribute to burgeoning obesity levels that have spread across the U.S. and around the world.
In fact, research shows that humans account for more than 17 million tons of excess weight. Those pounds are equivalent to the weight of 242 million people on the planet. Since the 1970s, the obesity rate has more than doubled in both adults and children, and more die in the US of too much food than of too little.
Currently, the obesity rate in the U.S. is 27.1 percent, which means that one in three adults is considered obese. As for children, one in six are obese, and obese children are more likely to become obese adults. Obesity increases the risk of sleep apnea, gout, heart attack, type II diabetes, stroke, and some cancers, and accounts for 100,000 deaths caused by obesity-related factors each year.
According to the 2013 U.S. News article the top ten fattest states are Mississippi, Alabama, West Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Arkansas. Unfortunately, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index found that the adult obesity rate in the United States is on pace to surpass rates of prior years, meaning that it isn’t likely to stop being a problem any time soon.
Avoid being a statistic. Jim Rohn, American entrepreneur says “take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live”.
