The epidemic
The Epidemic

It is a growing epidemic

  • 1 in 6 youth was identified as overweight, while 1 in 3 was identified as either overweight or at risk for becoming overweight

    Significant differences exist across socioeconomic status, race, and ethnicity

  • Those communities with the highest poverty rates and the least education are most at risk

  • Native American, African American, and Mexican American youth are at the greatest risk

  • Access to affordable healthy food and safety of neighborhoods have an impact


Being overweight or obese can have serious health implications

  • Significant factor in the dramatic increase of Type II diabetes

  • Hypertension is nine times more likely to occur

  • Orthopedic complications can arise

  • May result in negative psychosocial effects

  • Related to higher rates of morbidity and mortality later in life

    Obesity-related annual costs have increased dramatically

  • Annual hospital costs tripled over a twenty year period for youth

  • Total expenses related to adult obesity/overweight is estimated to be between $98 and $129 billion
