Obesity rates are rising again among American adults, despite national efforts to promote healthy lifestyles. Rates of obesity had been climbing dramatically since the 1980s but started levelling off in about 2004. This latest study means they are rising again - to nearly 38% in 2013-14, up from about 32% a decade ago. The numbers come from a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, using a national survey of about 5,000 people.
