Obesity: We’re Number Two!!!
I'd say on average us Americans don't like to find out were not ranked #1 at something. I think in this particular case---#2 isn't great, but it's better than being #1. There's a new report out from the United Nations and it says that the U.S. is no longer holding the titles of being the most overweight and fat country in the world! So--who gets the honors of being the most obese country on this planet? The new "Champions of Chub" is Mexico!
According to this report around 70% of Mexicans are overweight and how about this---33% are considered to be obese. And if you're wondering who is right behind the U.S. when it comes to fatties---in 3rd place is the nation of New Zealand. Now you know. I never thought being #2 at something would be ok, but this time I'm glad we're NOT #1!! (CBS News)
