Adults facing more issues with overweight compared to children, say Officials

A state indicator report on physical activity for 2014 has been released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). According to public health officials, about 41% of children and 75% of adults in the county are overweight in Merced county. In Massachusetts, only 56.3% of adults are able to meet their weekly physical procedure, according to the new report.

The rate of obesity in Massachusetts is lower than most of states but obesity is still a major problem in the state, say state health officials.
