New Adult Obesity Maps 35% or more adults had obesity in 9 states (Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, and West Virginia).

Adults without a high school degree or equivalent had the highest self-reported obesity (35.0%) -------------------- Could you imagine living in a state where there are so many fat people that every single person you see in a day is obese? Check this out. This is just white people: I get so tired of Republicans saying it's because black people live in their state. Well, look at Kentucky and West Virginia. Kentucky is nearly 90% white and West Virginia nearly 94% white. When Republicans on the USMB insist there is going to be an armed revolution to "take back" their country, do they really believe these people are going to war? And we posted the map of high school drop outs and it's nearly the same map. These people don't need war. They need healthcare. Part of a good healthcare plan is to live and eat healthy.
