There is an interesting study out on obesity in America. The study of American Journal of Preventive Medicine appears to confirm one stereotype: police officers and donuts. Almost half of police (as well as firefighters and security guards) were found to be obese. The second most obese? Clergy (as well as social workers and counsellors) at 35.6 percent. If appears that, even you cannot avoid crime or sin, you may at least be able to out run the immediate consequences.
In third place were home health aides and massage therapists are third at 34.8 per cent.
The least obese? Economists, Scientists, and psychologists (14.2 percent). Also, at the bottom of the heavy weights are actors/artists (20.1 percent); and physicians/dentists/nurses (22 percent). Perhaps the most surprising? Cooks, bartenders, and food servers were on the low end at 23.1 percent.
While we have recently seen higher estimate due to errors in reporting, the study found that one out of three Americans are obese.
