Watch the U.S. get fatter on CDC’s animated map!
Amber waves of gain: The Centers for Disease Control has mapped the dramatic increase in obesity state by state on a U.S. map covering 1985 to 2007. Who's the skinniest of them all? Nope, not California (we blame Fresno): Colorado. In 2007, only one state (Colorado) had a prevalence of obesity less than 20%. Thirty states had a prevalence equal to or greater than 25%.
