Obesity in the United States

I will tell you about the problem of obesity in the United States, obesity in the United States is one of the most cited health problems in the last ten years in the United States. While many developed countries have seen their rates of obesity rise, the United States is among the highest in the world.

Fast food are the cause of the rate raised obese in United States ?

The portions in the fast food and the American restaurant are huge, and according to the newspaper Los Angeles times "a third of American children eat fast food''. Fast food is an integral part of the American way of life. In addition, it is there that the history of fast food began. This may explain why Americans are one step ahead of French in the evolution of fast food. Indeed, for example in French the largest Coca corresponds to the smallest in the United States. But that's not all, in the United States there are 3 sizes of menus while in France there are only 2. It has also been proven that Americans go more often in fast food than French, but the Americans mostly choose take-out menus, whereas in general French people eat on the spot. For the French, fast food is a place of conviviality.

In the movie ''Super Size Me''  by Morgan Spurlock starts eating exclusively at McDonald's for a month to three meals a day. It takes more than 11 kilograms and has liver problems. The film aims to denounce the harmful effects of fast food, including obesity.

But in my opinion, this is not the cause of obesity in the United States,

For me, poverty is the cause of the problem because those with the lowest incomes are also those who have the least time to cook, less money to sign up for sports clubs and fewer opportunities to play outdoor sports. According to an internet article, The poorest state, Mississippi, is also the one with the highest rates of obesity and overweigh. There are two Americas in terms of food. A predominantly white America where obesity rates remain quite low and a rather black or Latin America where rates are rising rapidly.

The rate of obesity in the US population continues to rise and reaches a new high with 39.6% of adults affected, according to a government report in 2017

According to data from the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), obesity affects 33.8% of US adults, but up to 44.1% of blacks and 37.9% of Hispanics. The link between income and obesity is more marked for women than for men, whose obesity rate is more constant from one class to another.

I conclude that fast food is not necessarily the cause of the main problem of obesity in the United States.
