Obesity is a crisis that continues to plague OH and the rest of the country, according to an annual report released Wednesday on the state of obesity in America.
The 45- to 64-year-old demographic contained the highest percentage of obesity rate (31.8 percent), while 18- to-26-year-olds had a rate of 13.3 percent.
Adults without a high school degree had an obesity rate of 35.6 percent in comparison to 32.9 percent of adults with a high school degree, 31.9 percent of adults with some college and 22.7 percent of college graduates.
The CDC report revealed the obesity rates increased as level of education decreased.
States with obesity rates of 35 p.c or extra now encompass Iowa and Oklahoma.
Obesity rates vary from state to state, with a low of about 23 percent in Colorado to a high of 38 percent in West Virginia.
Health officials say that addressing the obesity epidemic will not only lead to better health outcomes but also reduce medical costs. For African-American adults, it was as high as 39 percent, and for Hispanics, it was 32 percent. "Congress has not been increasing it".
Obesity drives an estimated $149 billion annually in directly related healthcare spending, and an additional $66 billion annually in lowered economic productivity, according to the report. But its impact is most serious in communities where conditions make access to healthy foods and regular physical activity more hard, such as lower income and rural areas, including many communities of color.
Over the last two decades, the United States has implemented countless awareness programs aimed at both adults and children to try to combat the obesity epidemic.
There are, however, bright spots in certain settings where policies and programs have made it easier to eat well and exercise. These are typically lower income and rural areas, including many communities of color, the report noted.
Among them: States should mandate at least 60 minutes of physical education or activity during each school day.
Medicare should encourage eligible beneficiaries to enroll in obesity counseling as a covered benefit, and, evaluate its use and effectiveness.
Food and beverage companies should eliminate children's exposure to advertising and marketing of unhealthy products. Moreover, hospitals would possibly be pleased to composed stay promoting or serving sugary drinks.
