Medical supplies online for the 30% of obese U.S. adults

Fitness and weight management medical supplies online could help the 30.4% of Americans 20 and older who are obese, according to two CDC reports published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The percentage of American adults that reported themselves as obese in 2015 – per the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey – has increased .5% from 2014’s 29.9%. Women (40%) and teenagers and children (17%) in particular are at an increased risk for obesity. These findings show that the efforts to promote weight loss and healthy weight – including hundreds of millions of dollars spent on research, trials, studies, community and hospital programs, and development of devices and medications – have little to no effect on the population.

JAMA deputy director Dr. Jody Zylke and editor in chief Dr. Howard Bauchner wrote in an editorial that “although it is impossible to know what the extent of the obesity epidemic would have been without these efforts, the data reported ... certainly do not suggest much success.” The increase in obesity is accompanied by a rise in the incidence of diabetes in Americans aged 18 and older. Fortunately, there are affordable medical supplies online for that too at Discount Medical Supplies. To make matters worse, researchers are at a loss to account for the increasing rates of obesity. Race, ethnicity, age, and smoking habits were all considered and ruled out as risk factors for women – though those with education beyond high school were considerably less likely to be obese.

As for men, smokers were found to be thinner – speaking of which, if you’re don’t want to quit smoking because you’re afraid you’ll gain weight, you can add stop smoking aids to your fitness and weight management medical supplies online. But how do you know if you’re obese in the first place? A person with a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or higher is considered obese. BMI is calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by their height in squared meters and multiplying the resulting number by 703. 

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey followed approximately 5,000 Americans who are weighed and measured every two years. Unfortunately, they were not found wanting; on the contrary, they were bursting at the seams with humanity. Furthermore, the Trust for America's Health predicts that 44% of Americans will be obese by the year 2030, while the CDC’s projections are just slightly more optimistic at 42% of adults.
