Despite an announcement that stomach reducing operations can reverse and possibly cure type-2 diabetes, America's top heart specialists insist obesity is still their No. 1 issue.

Two-thirds of Americans are either overweight or obese. But researchers insist they won't make significant gains against heart disease if they can't reduce the obesity problem.
