By 2034, all African American women are expected to be overweight or obese, according to a health study published in the research journal, Obesity.

Currently, 78 percent of black women are presently overweight or obese. Mexican American men come in a close second, with 90 percent expected to be overweight in 2034.

By 2030, about 86 percent of all Americans are expected to be overweight. Dr. Lan Liang, one of the researchers on the study, points out that “genetically and physiologically, it should be impossible” for all U.S. adults to become overweight, but adds “that is the direction we’re going.”

The findings are based on government survey data collected between 1970 and 2004 and the current trends in diet.
