Poll: Americans Think Obesity Is A More Serious Problem Than Smoking

According to a Gallup poll released this week, Americans now believe obesity is a more serious problem than smoking. In the study, 81 percent of adults said obesity was an “extremely serious” or “very serious” social problem, compared with only 67 percent who reported the same about smoking. This is the first time since Gallup began asking the question in 2003 that Americans indicated that they are more worried about global obesity than smoking.
