Abstract:

Abstract: The prevalence of obesity put the future health of the United States at a crossroad. Currently, more than 35% of United States citizens are suffering from obesity and overweight. According to a national survey, adult obesity rates have more than doubled from 15% in 1980 to 35% in 2010. The weight-related health problems are widely prevalent and rapidly increasing. This study used CHIS data to examine the dietary habits' impact on weight of adolescents in the United States. When served with fast food two or more times per week or sugar-sweetened soda two or more times a day, children get higher BMI compared with those have less fast food and soda with sugar. Though results of the study can be influenced by confounding factors such as demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, they still show some trends and probabilities of intervention programs on weight-related problems. In light of these findings and other recent studies, measures to limit marketing of fast food to children may be warranted.
