The fattest places on earthPosted on Feb 12th 2007 3:57PM by Rigel Celeste
Yes, yes, we all know that Americans are getting fatter and fatter all the time. But wanna hear some good news? In a ranking of the most obese countries, the U.S. is not #1!
Sadly, however, we are in the top 10.
This is a pretty depressing article if you ask me -- over 74% of our adult population is overweight? I guess that shouldn't surprise me, since the issue is in the news so often, but it kinda does anyway. That's a really big number.
But back to the positive, at least we're doing better than the list topper, Nauru. At the #1 spot, 94.5% of their population is overweight. For the complete list of countries ranked from fattest to thinnest, click here.
