The world is getting bigger – and so are its people.  Things are a changing and not for the better.  Bad news here----Over 30 years ago In 1981, fewer than one in nine people were considered obese. Now, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), 19 of the 34 OECD member countries have a majority of their population that is either overweight or obese.


And when it comes to fat citizens, the U.S. is number one. According to data from the OECD, these are the 9 most obese countries in the world and at the top of the list...something not to be so proud of---the U.S.A.!!!
