Obesity in Texas is at all time high at almost 32 percent, even though it went down to 29.2 percent just four years ago. In 1990, only 1 in 10 Texans was obese. Just over 31 percent have high blood pressure, and the number of people with heart disease is projected to increase by more than 4 million a year by 2030. WalletHub puts Texas in ninth place when it comes to obesity and overweight prevalence but in 26th when it comes to unhealthy behaviors and consequences.
