Severely obese Americans on the rise
Severely obese people - those with at least 100 pounds of excess weight - are the fastest-growing group of overweight Americans, according to new research. Analysts examined data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and found that from 2000 to 2010, the proportion of Americans who were severely obese rose from 3.9 percent to 6.6 percent, an increase of about 70 percent.
