Findings published in a recent American Journal of Preventive Medicine study show that nearly 41% of police are obese. The job of law enforcement is to protect and serve the public but too many doughnuts can have a real impact on that.
Social workers, clergy and counsellors come in second, with 35.6 per cent having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more – the standard definition of obese used by the study.
Home health aides and massage therapists are third at 34.8 per cent.
Surprisingly sedentary professions such as truckers, bus drivers and crane operators, come in only fifth in a group with garbage collectors on nearly 32.8 per cent.
The slimmest workers are economists, scientists and psychologists, of whom 14.2 per cent are classed as obese.
