Maps Shows How Fat America Got Over 25 Year Period

According to this map posted on the Atlantic's website, we're doomed as a country in terms of health. The map illustrates obesity percentages in America from 1985 to 2010, with the lightest shade of blue representing good news and a reddish brown representing very bad news. By 2010, there's no blue to be found.

The map was created using data from the Centers for Disease Control, which states that 36 percent of all Americans are obese. As evidenced by the map, the greatest concentration of obesity percentages can be found in the south. 

Want a real scare? Look at the map from 1985. As said before, we're doomed.
