Some good news, there seems to be some leveling off instead of the steady growth we've seen for several decades. However, it says nothing about children, whom I assume are continuing to grow--disproportionately.
Nonetheless, the fact is: 1/3 of American adults are obese--a serious public health issue which the article seems to downplay.
Any of the presidential candidates who has the guts to tackle national health care, should consider and have a plan for stemming the tide of obesity. Planting a burger king or 7-11 on every corner isn't doing it.
