The World Is Getting Fatter
Yes, I could stand to lose a few pounds (and by the way, this pic is NOT of me). It turns out, most of the world could, too. According to a new analysis, almost a third of the world is now fat. 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 U.S. has about 13 percent of the world's fat population.
