This weekly puzzle is brought to you by: T&A Seeds Beach, ND (701) 872-3248 Some obesity rates fall; still higher than in 1990 Is the message that the nation is getting too fat beginning to sink in? The answer is "yes but," says the Trust for America's Health, a non- profit, non-partisan group that aims to protect the health of communities and make disease prevention a na- tional priority. And a study of health- care quality and quantity across the nation suggests some reasons why things are not improving uniformly. Obesity is a disease, and for the last 13 years the Trust and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation have monitored obesity rates in the coun- try, focusing on the proportion of a state's population that is obese. The study designates someone as obese whose body mass index (a measure based on height and weight) is 30 or higher. This year's results show that after a decade in which eve~ state's obese population rose, a few states have fi- nally experienced a decrease. "'We're seeing the rates plateau al- beit at a very high level," says Richard Hamburg, the interim presi- dent of the Trust. Although rates have dropped in Montana, Mitmesota, New York, and Ohio, even those decreased rates are still high. Twenty-six percent of adults in Minnesota were still con- sidered obese, and nearly 30 percent were in Ohio. Even in the states with the lowest rates - Colorado, Califbr- nia, Utah, Montana, Hawaii and Massachusetts - rates remain be- tween 20 and 25 percent. Twenty-two of the 25 states with the highest adult obesity rates are in the South and Midwest, including Kansas and Kentucky, both of which experienced an increase. To put this in perspective, Ham- burg told me that in 1980 no state had a rate above 15 percent; in 1990 no rate was above 20 percent. "Colorado is the healthiest state but exceeded the 20 percent rate years ago," he said. What happened? Hamburg ex- plained that many societal changes have conspired to increase obesity rates. Children have less opportunity Many families at McDonalds or Burger King a few times a week, but even if they cooked at home, they might not be eating "healthy" because they don't have ac- cess to fresh fruits and vegetables. for physical activities: parents are no longer comfortable sending their kids out to play and telling them to come home by dark. Other reasons? Sedentary activities like com- puter games have replaced physical activity. Many schools no longer offer physical education, and are not al- ways open for physical activity after the school day ends. More kids arrive at school via car or bus. In 1969, 89 percent of kids walked or rode their bikes to school. By 2009, the number had dropped to 35 percent. Eating habits are different, too, with families eating more often in restaurants, including fast food es- tablishments, and consuming more added sugars and fats. Many families eat at McI)onalds or Burger King a few times a week, but even if they cooked at home, they might not be eating "'healthy" because they don't have access to fresh fruits and,veg- etables. Hamburg told me 30 million peo- ple don't have easy access to a su- permarket: many residents in dense urban areas have to walk or take pub- lic transportation more than a mile to get more than a "convenience store" selection. Many in rural areas must drive 10 miles or more. Powerful marketing from the food industry is also a culprit, beckoning consumers to eat pizza, overstuffed tacos, and sodas without regard for the effect on their weight or health. I usually don't pay much attention to state rankings from various groups. Most people aren't going to move to another state just because it ranks better on whatever is being tneasured. But this time I did because as the obesity report came out, a per- sonal finance website, WalletHub, announced its latest report "2016's States with the Best & Worst Health Care."' And I was struck by a possible connection. What did WalletHub have to say about those states in the South and Midwest with high numbers of peo- ple who are obese? Were they getting routine examinations, and dental care? Were physicians accepting Medicare? Were there adequate hos- pital beds particularly, in rural areas where many hospitals have closed? Now I didn't attempt to do a sci- entific con'elation, and there may be many reasons why a state's health- care system ranks high or low on the WalletHub site. But for me, the take- away from these studies is that com- munities must offer not only treatment for health problems relat- ing to obesity but also ways to pre- vent the underlying cause in the first place. Communit:ies must have not just enough and appropriate medical fa- cilities and personnel but also pro- grams to encourage better eating habits and more physical activity. The Trust report offers sugges- tions that point in that direction. To learn more about how your state ranks on both these studies, go to sta- and (What is your communio; doing to address the obesiO' problem?
