One thing in this infographic that really struck me was the statistic that 74.1% Of America is overweight! (not obese but overweight) I wonder if a similar statistic could be said of Americans who are “unhealthy.”
A recent Consumer Reports survey of 1,234 U.S. adults, had these results: 90% of American’s think they are unhealthy. However, in this same survey, 89.7 percent of Americans described their diet as “somewhat” (52.6 percent), “very” (31.5 percent), or “extremely” (5.6 percent) healthy. Something is not adding up. Education is key.
