The Fattest States

Our pals at CalorieLab have published their annual ranking of the heftiest states. All right, all you Colorado people, what’s the secret? Mississippi is once again the “winner” for most obese, and California remains unchanged.
Click the map to read the detailed statistical breakdown.
A few points to consider:
- How do regional and/or cultural preferences affect obesity rates?
- Since there aren’t really any “thin” states, it’s not so much a matter of what some states are doing right – some states are just doing less “wrong”. What “right” steps do all states need to take?
- What role, if any, should the government play in addressing the obesity epidemic?
