Diet Blog looks at new information on global obesity. Here’s a little bit:
- For most developing nations, obesity is a now more serious threat than hunger. Worldwide, more than 1.3 billion people are overweight, while only about 800 million are underweight. These figures are diverging rapidly.
- Even poverty-stricken nations such as Nigeria and Uganda are facing high obesity rates
- People in developing worlds are consuming more caloric sweeteners, vegetable oils and animal-source foods. Poorer nations have also experienced an influx of technology that brings activity to a grinding halt.
