Mapping the U.S. obesity rate

This gives new meaning to the term "population growth." The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention web site is showing an animated map graphic, displaying in color the rate at which obesity numbers in the country have grown. Tracking the obesity rate from 1985 through 2007, the numbers show an increase from around 14% to 30% obesity. The data was pulled from a series of monthly telephone interviews.
