Obesity and Exercise Statistics and Heart Disease, Cancer Risk

CDC Obestiy 1

You are alive, but are you alive and well? When you wake up each day is it with renewed vigor and enthusiasm for the day ahead, or do you drag yourself out of bed and struggle through the day?

The statistics on the health of most Americans are quite disturbing.  According to recent stats from the CDC the rate of obesity in adults over 20 has increased from under 20% to 29% in the last 16 years!

Why is this a concern? Obesity is a major contributing factor to heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes, to name just a few. Being overweight or obese raises your risk for colon, breast, endometrial, and gallbladder cancers.

And we’ve become less active – in 2013 less than 25% of American adults met the criteria for physical activity guidelines.
