NEARLY ONE IN FIVE TEENS IS OVERWEIGHT

According to a recent Gallup Youth study, 18% of U.S. teens aged 13 to 17 describe themselves as overweight. Overweight teens are no more likely than other teens to admit to abusing junk food, but they do appear to be less physically active. Obesity ties with cancer as the issue teenagers identify as the most serious health problem facing the country.
