While searching Youtube this morning one of the suggested videos had a worrying obesity headline that caught my attention.
Mexico has now overtaken the United States to become the country with the highest level of obese citizens over the age of 18.
Number of obese Mexicans Adults: 32.8%
Number of obese American Adults: 31.8%
This new report by the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation charts obesity rates worldwide. It also revealed that 70% of Mexicans are overweight and childhood obesity figures have tripled over the last decade.
The rise in the Mexican obesity figures is attributed to fast food consumption and drinking excessive amounts of sugary sodas. Mexicans are the world largest consumer of coca-cola. This is a worrying trend, because it is not just the US or Mexico, obesity is a global epidemic that’s steadily increasing and causing an alarming rise in all the associated health issues.
