Obesity - the scourge of developing countries

During the observation, British scientists found that in a number of developing countries, people in their diets, as a rule, prefer fatty foods and are much more likely to get sick.

The experimental group included overweight people. The study was conducted from 1980 to 2008. According to his results, the number of overweight people has tripled over the years.

It was particularly noted that in middle-income countries, the problem of obesity is most acute, since residents of these countries tend to prefer fatty foods and meat, which results in the spread of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes. .

That is why experts recommend the governments of developing countries to carry out a large educational work among the population and begin the fight against obesity. Such an experience already existed in South Korea and Denmark and gave very positive results.
