      AMA Classifies Obesity as a Disease

      The American Medical Association now classifies obesity as a disease.

      Obesity affects about one in three adults and 17% of children in the U.S.

      Someone is considered obese if their body weight is 20% higher than it should be.

      The declaration now recognizes that it's a medical condition that requires treatment and prevention.
