According to a report released by Mission Readiness, obesity is the most common edical reason that potential recruits are disqualified from service in US Army. The report titled "Still Too Fat To Serve" says increasing obesity could be a challenge to national security as fewer and fewer people are eligible to keep up with the physical demands of the service.
