I honestly think the trend this shows is not so much with exercise, although I won't say that some of the 74% may need more of it. I think it shows what processed and food fillers are doing to the human body. We live in one of the worst food markets as far as additives and unnatural elements going into food products in the world here in the US. I doubt very much any other countries, especially ones with more natural foods, have such staggeringly poor numbers in this area.
Just my 2 cents.

It's insulin resistance. They'll all become diabetic and hypertensive soon. A ketogenic diet coupled with intermittent fasting is the most efficient way to reverse the problem, but it requires discipline...

Remember when the ATS userbase called out propaganda for being propaganda and didn't just blindly believe it because it came from an alternative news source? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
I'm really hung up on that 74% statistic that is quoted but has no supporting studies or evidence in the RT piece to back it up. Obesity may be on the rise, but that doesn't excuse RT from lying about its threat.
It's part of the "blame the Millennials for everything" propaganda

Be that as it may, OP, I see plenty of overweight & morbidly obese Boomers & elderly, too. Evidently the Boomers saw the food boom back in the day, and passed the gluttony on to the offspring.
To be fair, it's worse in some regions than in others. The south is capital F fat, we know this. It wouldn't be a stretch to assume the bulk of that 74% percentage is going to be southerners. I saw many more obese folks down in FL than I do here in MI. To put it politely, there's a yoga pants, skinny jeans & jeggings love up here and by all means girls, don't stop, you're giving the hubby & me some damn fine eye candy to ogle. These are some fit millenials 'round these parts

Can't lose weight living in your mom's basement.
I fall into the classification of millennial, but I'm not over weight, and everything else about me is opposite of my peers.
So you're saying you're actually special? That seems very millennial of you.
