Ten times more children and teens obese today than 40 years ago

The number of obese children and adolescents rose to 124 million in 2016 -- more than 10 times higher than the 11 million classified as obese 40 years ago, in 1975.

A further 213 million children and adolescents were overweight in 2016, finds a new study published Tuesday in the Lancet.

Looking at the broader picture, this equated to roughly 5.6% of girls and 7.8% of boys being obese last year.

Most countries within the Pacific Islands, including the Cook Islands and Nauru, had the highest rates globally, with more than 30% of their youth ages 5 to 19 estimated to be obese.

The United States and some countries in the Caribbean, such as Puerto Rico, as well as the Middle East, including Kuwait and Qatar, came next with levels of obesity above 20% for the same age group, according to the new data, visualized by the NCD Risk Factor Collaboration.

"Over the past four decades, obesity rates in children and adolescents have soared globally, and continue to do so in low- and middle-income countries," said Majid Ezzati, professor of global environmental health at Imperial College London in the UK, who led the research.

"More recently, they have plateaued in higher-income countries, although obesity levels remain unacceptably high," he said.

Over the same time period, the rise in obesity has particularly accelerated in East and South Asia.

"We now have children who are gaining weight when they are 5 years old," unlike children at the same age two generations ago, Ezzati told CNN.

In the largest study of its kind, more than 1,000 researchers collaborated to analyze weight and height data for almost 130 million people, including more than 31 million people 5 to 19 years old, to identify obesity trends from 1975 to 2016.

"Rates of child and adolescent obesity are accelerating in East, South and Southeast Asia, and continue to increase in other low and middle-income regions," said James Bentham, a statistician at the University of Kent, who co-authored the paper.

Obesity in adults is defined using a person's body mass index, the ratio between weight and height. A BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is classified as a healthy weight, 25 to 29.9 considered overweight and 30 and over obese. Cut-offs are lower among children and adolescents and vary based on age.

"While average BMI among children and adolescents has recently plateaued in Europe and North America, this is not an excuse for complacency as more than one in five young people in the U,S. and one in 10 in the UK are obese," he said.

Still selling that lie. At least champion ending HFCS and most other Agriculture subsidies.
Outlaw Publix and national grocery store from giving away expired processed foods with expired nitrates and past due HFCS in them. Talking bullshit about the Use By Date is just arbitrary, ignore that fact that Rice-A-Roni is supposed to be Yellow ignore that is Burnt Ocher now. Why is it we bitch at the few idiots rich enough to get fat. But we don't give a crap about the games the food chain plays with our food, and games every corner to maximize bailouts, and FDA incentives. From the Growers to the producers to the regional grocery stores, they are why you see so many fat kids that bother so you much. Do something Goddamn it!

That's 337 million people. There are only 323 million people in America. Something's wrong here.

I think CNN needs to read studies more carefully. In other news, two billion Americans can't do simple math.

"Obese" and 'overweight" are different classifications. So folks are transitioning from being overweight to obese. Soon more will transition from obese to Jabba The Hutt size.

That does not explain how the total of obese or overweight is more than the total number of Americans.

Perhaps there is overlap and many are both overweight and obese, hence you don't add the numbers.

Doh, no! Black wimmens be the worst.

Race[edit]

Rates of obesity in US by race.
Obesity is distributed unevenly across racial groups in the United States.[25] Non-Hispanic black women and Hispanic men have the highest prevalence of obesity.[26]

Caucasian[edit]
The obesity rate for Caucasian adults (over 30 BMI) in the US in 2010 was 26.8%.[27] For adult Caucasian men, the rate of obesity was 27.5% in 2010.[28] For adult Caucasian women, the rate of obesity was 24.5% in 2010.[28]

Black or African American[edit]
The obesity rate for Black adults (over 30 BMI) in the US in 2010 was 36.9%.[27] For adult Black men, the rate of obesity was 31.6% in 2010.[28] For adult Black women, the rate of obesity was 41.2% in 2010.[28] BMI is not a good indicator in determining all-cause and coronary heart disease mortality in black women compared to white women.[3]

American Indian or Alaska Native[edit]
The obesity rate for American Indian or Alaska Native adults (over 30 BMI) in the US in 2010 was 39.6%.[27] No breakdown by sex was given for American Indian or Alaska Native adults in the CDC figures.[27]

Asian[edit]
The obesity rate for Asian adults (over 30 BMI) in the US in 2010 was 11.6%.[27] No breakdown by sex was given for Asian adults in the CDC figures.[27]

Um, since this is a Lancet report is from the UK, why would you infer they are talking about "America". From the CNN website: "A new report finds 124 million children around the world were obese in 2016"

Notice the words "around the world".

That's not how the English sentences below work. Notice the phrase "A further 213 million children and adolescents...".

Also, there aren't even 213 million people under 18 in the U.S. in total. It's more like 90 million.

Unlike you, I can admit when I make the occasional mistake. In contrast, you are always wrong and always sure you are right. You are also petty to jump at any opportunity to attack me, when I look far better than you for being able to admit a mistake immediately when it is brought to my attention. That makes me vastly superior to you.

But hey, did you climax when you read me admitting to an error? Does that make you feel better about your pathetic, lonely life? You still get no respect.
