A shocking report released Tuesday by the advocacy group Trust for America's Health projects that by the year 2030, nearly half the population in a majority of states will be obese - with even the thinnest states reaching an over 44% obesity rate. The study also reported that medical costs from treating obesity-related diseases will likely increase by $48 billion, to $66 billion per year. Currently almost 66% of Americans are overweight, and 36% are obese.
