Yesterday, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation released its annual report articulating the states with the highest obesity rates in the nation. Winning the dubious distinction of first place: Mississippi.

The analysis used the state obesity rates released today by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Mississippi had the highest rate of obesity at 34.9 percent, while Colorado had the lowest rate at 20.7 percent. Twenty-six of the 30 states with the highest obesity rates are in the Midwest and South.

Grim, to be sure.
