Gallop just released a poll and the results are not pretty. 26% of Americans are obese.

And here’s TEN “FATTEST STATES” IN AMERICA:

  1. West Virginia
  2. Mississippi
  3. Kentucky
  4. South Carolina
  5. Louisiana
  6. Arkansas
  7. Oklahoma
  8. Alabama
  9. South Dakota
  10. Tennessee.

In West Virginia one out of three are obese. On average, 30.6% of the people in these ten states are obese.

What does this mean for these people? A much higher risk of being diabetic. The states with the highest percentage of people that are obese also face the highest levels of diabetes.

And that is hugely important because diabetes accounts for over $200 million annually in national health care costs plus it is a contributing cause for over a quarter million of deaths annually.
