HATTIESBURG, Ms (AP) -
Is fat the new normal?  It appears that may be the case in Mississippi.

WalletHub recently released its 2017 Fattest States in America list, and Mississippi is number one.  Dr. William Whitehead, a surgeon with the Hattiesburg Clinic, said he isn’t surprised about the report.

“It just reaffirms what we’ve seen in prior surveys and analysis of our population,” Dr. Whitehead said.
