Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning a new report on obesity. The report from the Harvard School of Public Health found that more people are obese than previously reported. A previous report from the CDC was compiled from a telephone survey in which people reported their own heights and weights. It's now know that many people over estimated their heights thus skewing the numbers. The new report relied on data where doctors actually measured people. Finding that 49 states had rates of obesity 30% or more and some states were over 40%.
