Americans Are Getting Fat & Reducing their Life Span

According to a recent study in the International Journal of Obesity, Americans are becoming obese earlier in life thus experiencing a greater duration of obesity over their lifetime. This trend may accelerate the prevalence of type 2 diabetes across the
U.S. population.

The information was gathered from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) from 1971-2006 or over the course of 35 years. The study concluded that “Increasing cumulative exposure to excess weight over the lifetime of recent birth cohorts will likely have profound implications for future rates of type 2 diabetes and mortality in the U.S.”
