Basically, men are catching up to women.
It does look good for women. Obesity may be stabilizing.
It looks like it's leveling off. We'll need more data over the next few years to know for sure, but hopefully we'll see this continue, which would be terrific.
There's good news and bad news. We're definitely nowhere near being out of the woods.
I didn't know if we would be able to detect an increase and I was surprised that we did. It's a concern, especially in children.
I was particularly concerned about seeing the increase in children, because we know that children who are overweight often become obese adults.
About 17 percent of children are overweight and about a third of adults are obese.
I was surprised that we could see an upward trend in such a short time among overweight children and obese men.
