Obesity Epidemic: No Slowdown Anytime Soon

Kudos, fatsos.
Data on people in their 20s suggests that the US obesity epidemic will continue for at least several more decades.

The obesity epidemic was first observed in the 1980s, but since then there has not been any analyses separating absolute age, birth period, and ethnicity effects on obesity prevalence. So epidemiologist Dr Whitney Robinson (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) and colleagues analyzed the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey to look for trends that can help estimate future obesity trends. Robinson presented the analysis as a poster at Obesity 2011.
And the time to stop paying for your illnesses of choice is now - before more days, let alone decades, pass.
