双语调查:美国女性更关注自己的体重

  American women are more concerned about losing weight than they are about suffering from cancer, heart disease or diabetes, a survey showed.

    More than half of the 3,000 women questioned in the poll by Meredith Corporation and NBC Universal were worried about diet and weight, compared to 23 percent who were concerned about cancer and 20 percent who were anxious about their cardiovascular health.

    The women were asked to identify the health issues they were concerned about from a list of 20 problems.

    The survey showed many women thought they should be slimmer, with more than 80 percent saying they were overweight.

    But just 43 percent said they were exercising at least three times a week, and 11 percent played team and individual sports. And less than two-thirds of all women said they get an annual physical.

    "These findings should be a wake-up call to American women everywhere to make their yearly checkups without fail and make their own personal health a top priority," said Diane Salvatore, editor in chief of Ladies' Home Journal, which is published by Meredith Corp.

    While the majority of women said they were overweight, 68 percent said they were satisfied with their "identity and development as an individual."

    But 40 percent said it was wrong for a man to tell a woman she was overweight.

    To improve their health, 26 percent of women said they took natural herbs and supplements, while 25 percent bought or adopted a pet, according to the survey.

    Four percent visited a spiritual or religious leader and one percent went to a hypnotist.

    一项调查显示,与癌症、心脏病和糖尿病相比,美国女性更关心减肥问题。

    这项由梅里迪斯集团和“NBC环球”联合开展的调查共对三千名女性进行了访问。调查结果显示,一半以上的女性担心自己的饮食和体重,而仅有23%和20%的人关心癌症问题和自己的心脑血管健康。

    该调查要求受访女性从所列的20个健康问题中选出她们关心的问题。

    调查显示,很多女性认为自己不够苗条,超过80%的女性认为自己体重超标。

    但仅有43%的女性每周至少锻炼三次,11%的女性参加集体或个人体育运动。不到三分之二的女性称她们每年体检一次。

    梅里迪斯集团出版的杂志《女士家庭》主编戴安•萨尔瓦多说:“这些调查结果应让全美女性认识到,她们应该坚持每年做体检,要把身体健康作为头等大事。”

    尽管多数女性认为自己体重超标,但68%的女性对“自己的现状和发展”很满意。

    40%的女性认为男士不应该说女士胖。

    调查显示,为了改善健康,26%的受访女性服用过天然草药和补品,25%的女性购买或收养过宠物。

    另有4%的女性拜访过精神或宗教领袖,1%的人接受过催眠治疗。
