Texas Is The 2nd Largest State In America, And The 10th Fattest Too
Here we go again with another list of things and stuff. This time its the fattest states in America. And Texas made the top 10. We're 10th to be exact. That's not good.
Based on rankings like number of overweight and obese adults, and overweight and obese kids, sugary drinks, health care costs and more, Texas is the tenth fattest state in America. No surprise that all of the top 10 are southern states. For one we love our fried food for sure, but also poorer places will always have more unhealthy people because junk food is cheaper than healthy food. And less educated areas of the country are less aware of how to be and stay active and healthy. With that in mind, here is the full report from Wallethub. We also come in at #2 for number of obese kids, and that's something we should all be concerned about.
