Obesity is a leading contributor to cardiovascular disease, cancer and other dangerous health conditions. Additionally, an increase in drug deaths, suicides and cardiovascular disease deaths is contributing to an increase in premature deaths in the US.
The obesity rate is up from 29,9 percent to 31,3 percent of the population, the Associated Press reported. The rate has exceeded the 30 percent mark of all adults for the first time in America’s Health Rankings history, up 5 percent in the past year alone.
Premature deaths increased by 3 percent, from 7 214 to 7 432 years lost before age 75 per 100 000 people.
The suicide rate has increased by an shocking 16 percent since 2012 (from 12,0 to 13,9 deaths per 100 000 people). The state of Montana has the most suicides at 26,0 deaths per 100 000. Notably, the suicide rate is much higher among males: 22,2 deaths per 100 000 compared with females at 6,2 deaths per 100 000.
Montana is also the least black state in the US. According to the latest US Census population estimates, 0,43 percent of Montana’s 944 632 residents are black. There are only 4 094 black people there, which is also numerically the smallest black community of any state in the country, suggesting that suicides affect whites mostly.
Fatter than ever, the US also boasts the most drug deaths than ever as well as more anti-depressant use than ever.
An estimated 24,6 million people in the United States had used some kind of illicit drug in the month of June, according to the latest government statistics. About 9,4 percent of all persons aged 12 and over are involved in the use of illegal drugs or the nonmedical use of prescription drugs.
The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), in a yearly interview of 67 500 persons sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, provides the most accurate estimates.
According to the 2013 NSDUH findings, illicit drug use rates have shown a recent trend in increasing marijuana use and an alarming increase in the abuse of prescription-type psychotherapeutic drugs.
According to the survey, these are the most commonly abused drugs:
- Marijuana, by 19,8 million people
- Prescription drugs, 6,5 million nonmedical users.
- Cocaine, 1,5 million users.
- Hallucinogens, including Ecstasy, 1,3 million users.
- Methamphetamine, about 595 000 users.
- Heroin, about 300 000 users
Most illegal drug users are employed, the study showed.
According to SAMHSA estimates, 2,8 million people used drugs for the first time in 2013, an average of 7 800 new users per day. Of those new users, 54,1 percent were under 18 years of age.
