According to a new study, nearly half of the US population is projected to become obese in 20 years.

By Joni Sweet

A new report says that around half of American adults could be obese by 2030 if current trends continue. The four-part series published in the British medical journal The Lancet used a simulation model to predict potential health effects of the rise in obesity, which projects up to an additional 8.5 million cases of diabetes, 7.3 million cases of heart diseases and stroke, and 669,000 cases of cancer. The report also recommends a change in government policies surrounding food, such as increasing taxes on junk food, reducing the price of healthy food, and developing new marketing strategies. For now, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine recommends adopting a low-fat, plant-based diet to lose weight healthfully.
