Looks like we need to lay off the amber waves of grain a little. According to F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America‘s Future 2010, a report from the Trust for America’s Health, 28 of our fair states gained weight. 49 of our states have obesity rates over 20%. For some reason, Colorado is the only state in the union to have dodged the chubby bullet when it comes to adults. Maybe all that leprechaun chasing is yielding cardiovascular benefits. For kids, Oregon is the only state with obesity rates below 10%. Yet, oddly enough, they have Happy Meals in Portland! How do they do it?
