Obesity in America

According to a March report from the World Obesity Atlas (WOA), more than half of the global population—51%, or over 4 billion people—will have obesity by 2035, and the condition will touch all regions and continents of the world.

Thanks to the convenience of technology, our modern lifestyles and drive everywhere car-centric culture, people in the U.S. are more inactive than ever, drowning in an epidemic of preventable diseases. The World Health Organization says inactivity is the 4th leading cause for premature deaths. 3.2 million deaths per year.

We need to change the way we think about health, from a focus on treating disease to a focus on preventing it. That means action on healthy air, healthy water, healthy food and, most importantly, healthy ways to get around like walking, cycling and public transport.
