    "More than one-third of U.S. adults -– over 72 million people -- were obese in 2005-2006" according to a new study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The figures show no statistically significant change from 2003-2004, when 31.1 percent of men were obese and 33.2 percent of women were obese," the press release reports.
