DE­NIAL IS GAIN­ING

New York Post - - NEWS - Ras­mussen Re­ports

The United States has the world’s high­est per­cent­age of obese chil­dren and young adults, a study says — but most Amer­i­cans don’t think it ap­plies to them. A new na­tional sur­vey finds that just 25 per­cent of Amer­i­can adults say they are over­weight, down from 32 per­cent in 2015 and the low­est since Ras­mussen Re­ports first asked the ques­tion in 2009. The num­ber of Amer­i­cans who say they’re over­weight has been on the de­cline since reach­ing a high of 42 per­cent in May 2012.
