New report: Obesity an epidemic in Indiana

A new report says obesity is an epidemic in the Hoosier State.

A report from the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation says obesity has risen 20 percent in Indiana since 1995, making it the 12th highest rate in the U.S. Meanwhile, it's costing the state an estimated $8.5 billion annually.

The report shows environmental factors have driven growth in Indiana's obesity rates, and it recommends collective action to address the health epidemic.
