The World is Now More Obese than Overweight

The World is Now More Obese than Overweight

Not to be punny but the number of people IN THE WORLD who are obese is bigger than the number of people who are overweight. Published in the Lancet, researchers say that 14.9% of women worldwide are obese with an estimated increase to 21% of the population by 2025. In fact, 20% of those obese adults live in Australia, Canada, Ireland, the UK, New Zealand, and of course, the United States. Ugh.
