CDC Says Obesity Top Health Threat


Dr. Julie Gerberding, Director of the Center for Disease Control, has said that obesity is far more dangerous than West Nile and other threats - but that people ignore the problem.

Current statistics show that health problems caused by being overweight are almost as deadly as tobacco, and will soon overtake tobacco as a killer of US residents. When it does, it will become the leading cause of death.

Current statistics show that a full 65% of those in the US are overweight now. Even more frightening, a full 25% of residents in West Virginia, Louisiana and Mississippi are obese.

To be overweight, you have a body mass index (or BMI) of 25 or higher. To qualify for obese, your BMI is 30 or higher.
