CDC Unveils National Obesity Rates: Where Does Texas Rank?

A new government survey shows 12 states now have very high obesity rates among its adult residents.

The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System telephone survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gathered a nationally representative rate of Americans across the U.S. by calling 400,000 Americans in 2011, asking them about their height and weight.

What did the survey show? Overall, more than a third of adults are obese, similar to earlier reports, but rates differ by state.
