Obesity on the rise in most US counties, though activity levels are increasing
Obesity on the rise in most US counties, though activity levels are increasing (July 24, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Seattle - Obesity is increasing in most US counties, though activity levels are on the rise, according to a report published in Population Health Metrics. Researchers studied data on over 1,400 US counties, from 1985-2010. They found that obesity rates rose in most US counties, particularly in Kentucky, Mississippi and Louisiana. However, researchers also noted that physical activity levels made significant improvements from 2001-2009, especially in Kentucky, Georgia, and Florida--an aspect that will likely result in dramatic health improvements.
