Obesity rates in the United States are higher than ever before, with about 37 percent of adults, and 17 percent of young people ages 2 to 19 currently classified as obese. Through a narrative-driven pro/con format—supported by relevant facts, quotes, anecdotes, and full-color illustrations—this title examines issues related to obesity. Topics include: Does Obesity Pose a Serious Health Threat? Is Obesity a Matter of Personal Responsibility? Is the Food Industry to Blame for Obesity? Can the United States Reduce the Problem of Obesity?
