Obesity statistics are insane

I came across two news articles recently. Take a look at the first and second one. Now, let’s take a look at what they say about obesity statistics.

The first article:

According to CDC, one-third of U.S. residents are obese, and two-thirds are overweight or obese

The second article:

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 64.5 percent of adult Americans are overweight or obese.

Now, you might think, “No big deal. They are two different groups giving statistics.”


They are the same organization. The CDC is the same as the National Center for Health Statistics.

You tell me again why the obesity epidemic is raging? Could it be misleading statistics?

I’ve gone ahead and contacted the organizations to ask about these statistics, and I’ll let you know what I hear.
