The Harris Poll about the state of American waistlines

In the previous blog posting I talked about ‘heavyweight’ papers. In this post I will talk about heavyweight people.

The Harris Poll gives lots of stats about the state of American waistlines. Not good is the bottom line.

The chart suggests that 27% of baby boomers reckon their weight has given them health issues. I suggest that is blissful ignorance of the problems their weight problem is creating.

If I were a supplier of diabetes drugs I would be encouraged by these findings. If I was a public health worker I would be frantic. Dick Stroud
