More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) are obese. “CDC” (2012)
                b. Obesity increases the risk of a number of health conditions including Hypertension, adverse lipid concentrations, and type 2 diabetes. (1). the prevalence of obesity in the United States increased during the last decades of the 20th century (2, 3). More recently there appears to have been a slowing of the rate of increase or even a leveling off (4,5). Given the health risks of obesity and its high prevalence, it is important to continue to track the prevalence of obesity among U.S. adults and children. This report presents.   “CDC” (2012)
                  c. Non-Hispanic blacks have the highest age-adjusted rates of obesity (49.5%) compared with Mexican Americans (40.4%), all Hispanics (39.1%) and non-Hispanic whites (34.3%) [See JAMA. 2012;307(5):491-497. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.39]. “CDC” (2012)

a. NY Times reported that the Department of Agriculture in the 1970 supplied food with 2,086 calories to per person per day on an average. “New York Times” (2013)
          b.   NY Times also stated that by 2010, the total had amounted to 2,534 calories which increased to more than 20 percent. “New York Times” (2013)
          c.     Calories being this high will risk the chances of becoming obese and if the person does not diet, or excise they will be at risk. We can eat our favorite foods but we have to change portion and size of the foods, this way we won’t intake so many calories.   Dieting and excising will change the outlook on our life style and what we eat.

3. Third main idea:
          a. Does fast food cause obesity? In short... yes. While it is certainly not the only cause, in conjunction with other factors, fast food restaurants are a big part of the obesity problem.
