ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study of more than 32,000 people published in the Journal of the American Medical Association which found that the obesity rate for immigrants who had been living less than a year in the U.S. averages about 8% and rises only slowly for the first 10 years. The study found then that the number starts shooting up, and after living the American way for at least 15 years, the prevalence of obesity in the foreign born jumps to 19%, or virtually the same as people born here.
