All across the United States, obesity rates are rising.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in some states, more than 35 percent of adults are obese.
The World Health Organization (WHO) explain that globally, obesity prevalence has almost doubled since 1980.
Many factors are involved in this steady increase in weight, and so far, reversing the tide has proven challenging.
Because of this seemingly unstoppable trend, finding simple ways to minimize the risk and influence of obesity could have a wide-ranging impact.
