More Than Half of American Kids May Be Obese by 35

More Than Half of American Kids May Be Obese by 35

Researchers estimate that 57% of children who are currently between 2 and 19 years old will be obese by age 35 if current diet and health trends continue.  Currently, about 38% of American adults age 20 and over are obese, a number which has been steadily climbing since the 1970s.  It was determined that while childhood obesity is a definitive risk factor for adult obesity, a high number of normal-weight children are still at risk for developing obesity later in life, according to the projections.
