Weight of the Nation, Part IV: Challenges. Obesity is a very serious medical condition. It’s a contributing factor in the death and disability of too many of our neighbors, friends and family members, and its societal costs are astronomical. Although overall obesity prevalence rates appear to be leveling off, approximately one-third of adults are overweight or obese—still far too many. The battle against obesity will eventually be won—not by a “silver bullet” but by combined and diverse efforts, from building new
parks to operating healthy food trucks, opening new grocery stores and other healthy food outlets to planting community gardens and everything in between.
