Salud celebró el primer foro de obesidad en Puerto Rico

Jun 25, 2016 Written by  Redacción LA ESQUINA
La presentación de estudios y datos más recientes de obesidad en Puerto Rico, el intercambio de experiencias y colaboraciones fueron los motivos tras el primer Foro de Obesidad en Puerto Rico: ¿Cuánto Conocemos? El esfuerzo de la Secretaría Auxiliar para la Promoción de la Salud (SAPS) del Departamento de Salud (DS) tuvo lugar el viernes, 24 de junio de este año, en el Centro de Bellas Artes de Caguas. El objetivo fue promover la discusión sobre la magnitud e impacto del sobrepeso y la obesidad en Puerto Rico, a través de la investigación y los datos disponibles. La prevalencia de sobrepeso y obesidad entre los participantes de 2 a 5 años del Programa WIC de Puerto Rico, fue de 14.9% y 17.0% respectivamente (2013). De ellos, 43.3% reportó que consume dulces, refrescos (17.1%), jugos (88.9%) y meriendas saladas (24.1%). Los adolescentes, presentaron una prevalencia de 14% en sobrepeso y 11% en obesidad, según datos del Sistema de Vigilancia de Factores de Riesgo de Comportamiento en Jóvenes en 2015 (YRBSS, por sus siglas en inglés). La prevalencia de obesidad y sobrepeso en adultos en Puerto Rico es de 67% según el Sistema de Vigilancia de Factores de Riesgo de Comportamiento en 2015 (BRFSS).
