Trust For America's Health releases annual obesity report

By Jessica Janner. CREATED Aug 20, 2013

(KTNV) -- Americans are still overweight but according to a newly-released report, the problem is not getting any worse. At least for now.

And for once, Nevada is at the bottom of the list.

Trust For America's Health has released their annual "F" report.

Nevada was ranked 34th on the list of most obese states -- the same ranking as last year.

Just over a quarter of Nevada's population is considered obese -- 26.2 percent.

It seems like a good sign but the report also predicts that the obesity rate will be 50 percent by 2030.

As of right now, no state in the nation has an obesity rate of less than 20 percent.
