Finally, we'll be in the majority!


From CBS story:

"More than half of the world's population will be obese or overweight by 2035, according to a new report from the World Obesity Federation.

In the 2023 World Obesity Atlas report, the organization projected that 51% of the global population will be "living with overweight and obesity within 12 years if prevention, treatment and support do not improve."

If current trends prevail, the report also predicts childhood obesity could more than double compared to 2020 levels."


In Alabama, we're already almost there.

According to 2021 data, Alabama's rate of adult obesity is 39.9%, which places the state in the third highest position in the nation. Visit the CDC for more information.

The rate of obesity for youth in Alabama is 17.2% (high school students).
