Texas Ranks High In Obesity
A new obesity study ranks Texas as the 13th worst state for obesity. The study…. by the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation…shows a link between income and obesity as well. One-third of adults earning less than 15-thousand dollars a year were obese compared to one-fourth of adults earning 50 thousand or more.
The obesity rate for Texas adolescents is seventh in the nation. The good news..the state has passed tough laws regulating nutrition in schools.
