According to the study taken by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD on September 23, 2010, the United States leads the number of fat people in the world. US residents are much less physically active than in the past, thus overweight increased from 50% in 1980 to approximately 70% in 2010.

Apparently, these rates have doubled, even tripled in almost half of developed countries including the United State. With 34% of obesity, the United States is leading the rank of the world's richest countries getting fatter and fatter, and three out of four Americans will be obese within 10 years. If governments, individuals and industries including the United States do not cooperate to combat the epidemic, disease rates and health care expenditures will have been out of control by 2020. Let's have a look at the statistics by OECD of overweight of the United States in particular and the world's other richest countries in general.

Obesity is currently among the greatest issues becoming popular in the world's most-developed countries including America, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia and so on

By all accounts the UK is not far behind America. We are catching up fast, and Australia has a big obesity problem too.

The problem is, politicians and medical workers alike know what the problems are, know what causes it and know how to reverse it.

But nobody wants to take drastic action, so it is just lots of tiptoeing around the issues coming up with half baked ideas and initiatives that fail to last more than a couple of years and end up getting rejected after a government rethink / reshuffle / election.
