Obesity in the U.S.

    • 32.7 percent of U.S. adults 20 years and older are overweight,
    • 34.3 percent are obese
    • 5.9 percent are extremely obese
  • That totals 73% of adults being overweight or obese
  • Latinos, farmworkers in particular, are at even higher risk than other adults to be obese and have the complications that accompany obesity
