Two new surveys from the Centers for Disease Control suggest some progress in improving the way Americans eat, but experts are not ready to celebrate yet.
“If you were in the like the 20-39-year-old age group, you were more likely to consume fast food.”
John Sirard is a professor at the University of Virginia, specializing in exercise and its impact on the body. He says African-Americans also tended to consume more fast food than white or Hispanic adults. Looking at children, the CDC found overall consumption of calories down, but childhood obesity was up three percent.
