Obesity in Europe on the Rise

The US has long reigned supreme when it came to the scale.  We’ve been the biggest nation on the block for some time.  But, Europe’s Obesity rates are on the rise.

Some 30 percent of children in Britain are obese or overweight, and percentages are rising in southern Europe, while in new European Union states in eastern Europe, rates of obesity are surging at a time when health spending is being curtailed.

Sound Familiar?  That’s what happened here.  Huge cultural shifts toward a fast food economy, a growing overweight population, and lowered access to medical care are a telling precursor of an epidemic of Obesity.


One response to this post.

  1. I think it will be great if the state put a ban on hamurgers.
