In a research study administered in 2010, results showed that thirty-six out of 50 states had obesity rates of at least 25%; twelve of these--Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia--had obesity rates of 30% or greater. (Source: http:⁄⁄www.cdc.gov⁄obesity⁄data⁄trends.html, “US Obesity Trends”, accessed 3-16-2012). These are sobering numbers indeed.
