Ohio Again Ranked High For Adult Obesity

The Centers for Disease Control again ranks Ohio as one of the nation's most obese states. Ohio is one of 13 states with an adult obesity rate of more than 30-percent. Researchers blame higher poverty rates, noting people with low incomes tend to buy cheaper, highly-processed foods. Those foods are higher in sugar, fat, and salt content.
