New Data from New York State Outlines Impact of Poverty on Obesity
Date:7/12/2013

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) July 12, 2013

As part of a new requirement in New York State, school districts now have to provide information about student obesity rates to the state government. The state then aggregates these reports to get a full picture of childhood obesity in New York State. The most recent statistics are were discussed on July 11, 2013 in an article in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. The article was written by Tiffany Lankes and Bary Beth Pfeiffer, and is entitled "State data shows obesity an urban, suburban divide."

The article discusses the school district data for Rochester and the area surrounding it, and shows the percentages of students in these districts who are either suffering from obesity or are overweight. The article shows the percentage of obese or overweight students alongside the percentage of students from that school district who quality for free lunch or reduced price lunch. The data outlines the relationship between poverty and obesity. In Rochester, 88 percent of the students quality for free or reduced price lunch, and 48 percent of the students are obese. In nearby rural Pittsford, 4 percent of the students quality for the discounted or free lunch, and only 22 percent of students are obese or overweight.

The article includes comments by local pediatrician Stephen Cook, who works at Golisano Childrens Hospital in Rochester. Cook says, "We know that families in the city are struggling with many barriers, and significant barriers." According to the article, the link between poverty and hunger has led some local charities to change their strategies so that they are able to provide families with nutritious food.

This article is yet another example of the troubling impact that obesity is having on many of America'
