Swedish Fat

According to the AFP the number of obese people in Sweden has doubled over the past 25 years:
The problem has increased most among young women, non-labour workers and rural residents, though Swedes across all social groups registered weight gains during the period.

Obesity, blamed on changes in diet and lifedtyles, has long been a problem in the United States and is on the rise in many European countries. In France, nine percent of people are considered obese, compared to 12 percent in Germany and 23 percent in Britain.

People from Sweden are called Swedes. People from Switzerland are called Swiss. In this case the article is about Sweden, not Switzerland.
I know it can be confusing for you Mexicans :)
