Another setback in the global battle against obesity, the AFP reports that more and more Spaniards—including children—are overweight or obese. More from the report:
"Fifty two percent of the adult population and 27.6 percent of children are either overweight or obese," the ministry said as it unveiled the results of a 2006 study into the state of the nation's health.
The results, based on the height and weight of respondents interviewed in 31,000 households nationwide, showed that 15.5 percent of men and 15 percent of women were obese and that 44.4 percent of men and 30.3 percent of women were overweight.
