By 2030, Half of Texas Adults Could be Obese

Texas weighs in on the national scale as the 10th fattest state. With a third of adults in Texas being obese, the numbers aren’t projected to slim down any time soon. Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Foundation estimated that 50 percent of the adults in Texas could be obese by 2030.

The report suggests that the state could reduce healthcare costs by more than $19 billion in 10 years if Texans lower the average body mass index by 5 percent.
