30 percent of world is now obese, no country immune

Published: 05.29.14, 11:57 / Israel News

Almost a third of the world is now fat, and no country has been able to curb obesity rates in the last three decades, according to a new global analysis.

 

Researchers found more than 2 billion people worldwide are now overweight or obese. The highest rates were in the Middle East and North Africa, where nearly 60 percent of men and 65 percent of women are heavy. The US has about 13 percent of the world's fat population, a greater percentage than any other country. China and India combined have about 15 percent. (AP)
