The World’s Population is Getting Heavier

A new 200-country study published in The Lancet has found that between 1980 and 2008 the prevalence of obesity increased dramatically for both men and women. Obesity among men rose from 4.8% to 9.8%, and in women from 7.9% to 13.8%. The rise in weight that we see in certain parts of the world has become a tsunami of global proportions.
