Ohio is the 13th most obese state in the country, a report released on Tuesday, June 29 said, giving a second confirmation to a catastrophe that officers call alarming.


Clark County Health Commissioner, Charles Patterson said that more and more people are seen to have gotten affected with chronic diseases, which obesity tends to have caused in the lives of people.


The proof is observed via the data available in hospitals where the number is only jumping high, with people suffering from diabetes, heart disease and high BP.


The results of the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation seventh ‘F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future 2010’, illustrated Mississippi as the fattest state, which was followed by Alabama and Tennessee, which tied for second position.


For 2005 to 2008, Ohio had the 10th highest rate of adults, who were obese with a standard rate of 28.6%.


Kids in Ohio are the 12 most obese in the country. They were ranked 15th for the preceding period.


A latest study of no less than 1,000 Clark County’s third-graders depicted more than 45% of them to be accounted as either overweight or obese, a more than 10% jump from the state’s standard for that age five years ago, Patterson said.
