2005-2006 obesity data US & Canada.
Shockingly, the thinnest and likely most active state Colorado is the thinnest state in America and the only one of all 50 states to have under 20% obesity. Which is the same as every single highly populated Provence in Canada.
Our fattest territories are lowly populated, have permafrost due to their location in the far north and still the populous has 24-26% obesity which is the same as Washington and other healthy & active areas in the U.S.
The poorest states are the fattest where 28-30.6% of residents are obese (or worse 31.6%!)
Just look at the map for yourself, the fattest states are indeed the poorest!
What does this say about America? Western Culture? Society? With increasing obesity rates in both the U.S. And Canada… How much does this have to do with the death of the American Dream and the breakdown of our culture where the median income family was able to own a home, have safety, have security and live life as expected. Could the obesity have anything to do with stress and socioeconomic pressures?
