Extractions: Legislation for 2003-2004 2005 Update Now Available Obesity is epidemic in the United States. In the past two decades, rates of overweight and obesity have doubled for children and tripled in adolescents. The percentage of overweight among children and youth has climbed to the 15 percent range. Being overweight or obese increases risk for the top U.S. causes of death and disability including heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes. Across the country, obesity carried a $117 billion price tag in 2000, accounting for 9 percent of the nationâs total health care costs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that if current obesity trends continue, one-third of all children, and one-half of African-American and Hispanic children, born in 2000 will develop diabetes. Fortunately, much can be done to prevent costly obesity-related health problems. State legislators have begun to aim prevention efforts at obesity risk factors that begin in childhoodâsuch as poor nutrition, physical inactivity, and the increase in children diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
