Obesity Facts

Researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina compared two large-scale studies covering the period 1988 to 2006 and found the percentage of adults with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30 rose from 28 percent to 36 percent.

The number of people exercising three times a week or more fell from 53 percent to 43 percent, while the number of people eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day fell by nearly 40 percent.
