these are studies as of September 2018.

Updated September 2018: According to the most recent Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) data, adult obesity rates now exceed 35%
in seven states, 30% in 29 states and 25% in 48 states. West Virginia has the highest adult obesity rate at 38.1% and Colorado has the lowest at 22.6%.
The adult obesity rate increased in Iowa, Massachusetts, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island and South Carolina between 2016 and 2017,
and remained stable in the rest of states

Not just obesity, but type 2 diabetes rates are alarmingly high.

In the 70s, it was incredibly rare for it to be found in children.

Now, 1 in 3 children have type 2 diabetes. 


In your non-professional opinion, what do you believe are the causes for the increased rates in obesity? 

1)  poor eating habits?
2)  high fructose sugar in everything?
3)  lack of exercise?
4)  mammoth portions? 
5)  stress?


and a bonus question, why did Michelle Obama get such a fierce reaction from Conservatives/Republicans for suggesting to American people to eat more healthy?

was that really out of line?

Poor eating habits and lack of exercise. Bring PE and exercise back to schools!! Not only is it healthier, but kids need a way to burn off some energy!

No, it wasn't out of line at all. But then, she could find the cure for cancer and the filthy repubs would still criticize her.

It wasn't her suggestion,  it was the actual interference in school lunch programs that caused the backlash.

A goal without a plan, is just a wish.

Remember Jamie Oliver?  He's the guy that got kicked out of schools for trying to teach kids how to eat healthy.

The getting rid of Gym activities in schools. Video Games, Tables and iPhones.  Not allowing them to go beyond the boundary lines or the eyesight of home. To not walk a mile or two to discover ones own neighborhood.  Powered skateboards and others like it. Lack of activity. 

I ate whatever and how much I wanted. But was outside every day doing something and having to walk wherever I went.

Kids have to be driven to school instead of walking like I did!

Just informed the the county I’m moving away from has the most fast food restaurants per capita
and the worst health!

Cause & effect ?

Stretch,

could you expand on that?

on how she "interfered?"

(this question is asked not in a "gotcha question" tone, just genuinely interested in your response)

Let parents make their kids lunch instead of forcing kids to eat the garbage at the cafeteria.  Yeah I know, some kids have allergies.  Fine. Let those kids with allergies to have the cafeteria to themselves and eat first.  Or have a separate room with two chairs for the only kid in school with an allergy. One chair for him/her and the other for a teacher to keep them company.

I don't remember what the plan was called, but it mandated changes in school lunch programs which resulted in kids actually eating less healthy foods because what was served turned them off.

School cafeterias are not the problem.  It's what they do and eat before and after school.

If I may deliver an old fart rant... In my day, fat kids were somewhat rare, and so were helicopter parents.  We walked almost everywhere we went... to school, to town to spend our 25 cent allowance, etc.  We played in the woods a mile from home.

When I got my drivers' license at 15, I was 6'2" and 145lbs!
