Obesity!

Post by kennzo » Thu May 29, 2014 2:13 pm

Interesting article in the Lancet shown on BBC News today:

More than half of the world's 671 million obese people live in 10 countries, ranked in order:

• US
• China
• India
• Russia
• Brazil
• Mexico
• Egypt
• Germany
• Pakistan
• Indonesia

I tend to sleep in the nude. Which isn't a bad thing except for maybe on those long flights.

With about eight of those countries also being the most populated in the world, I guess they're not much of a surprise. Germany and Egypt seem to be eating above their weight a little, though.



Edited to swap Pakistan with Egypt which was what I meant to write.

TOP 10 countries by population:

1 China 1,364,710,000
2 India 1,244,690,000
3 United States 318,121,000
4 Indonesia 247,424,598
5 Brazil 202,626,000
6 Pakistan 186,582,000
7 Nigeria 173,615,000
8 Bangladesh 152,518,015
9 Russia 143,700,000
10 Japan 127,100,000

Your point is valid, but the Japanese are doing well.

If it were an expat obesity list I imagine the scales would be tipped to favor Cambodia considerably.

Why isn't New Zealand on that list?

They made the news today.
