PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- Arizona's current obesity epidemic affects 24.7% of our population and is expected to hit 58.8% by 2030 according to the recent article released from Trust for America's Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). New Obesity Medicine Physician, Dr. Melody Rodarte DO, tells her patients it's time to fight back! "When our homes and offices are full of candy and cookies, it hurts our health. Just having sugary foods readily available will cause you and anyone who visits you to make poor choices," explains Dr. Rodarte.
