America No Longer Worlds Fattest Country

According to a new report from the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization, the United States is no longer the world's fattest developed nation--Mexico is.

Nearly a third of Mexican adults (32.8 percent) are considered obese—people aged 20 and older whose body mass index (BMI) is 30 and above. That edges the United States, where 31.8 percent of American adults are considered obese.

Syria at 31.6 percent, is the third fattest among developed countries, while Venezuela and Libya are tied for fourth at 30.8 percent.

Mexico's urban lifestyle and rising income levels, coupled with malnourishment among the country's poor, have helped it claim this unhealthy title.

“The same people who are malnourished are the ones who are becoming obese,” Abelardo Avila, a physician with Mexico's National Nutrition Institute, told the Global Post. “In the poor classes we have obese parents and malnourished children. The worst thing is the children are becoming programmed for obesity. It's a very serious epidemic.”

Diabetes kills an estimated 70,000 people a year in Mexico—"or roughly equal to the deaths authorities say are caused by more than six years of the country's gangland wars," the Post noted.

About 12 percent of the world's total population is obese, according to the U.N. report.

The world's fattest nation overall is Nauru, a South Pacific island where a staggering 71.1 of its 10,000 inhabitants are obese.

The U.N. report does not include data for American Samoa, which has been tabbed in the past as the world's fattest. According to a 2010 World Health Organization report, nearly all of that Pacific island's inhabitants (95 percent) are considered overweight.

On the other end of the scale is Japan, the thinnest developed country. Just 4.5 of Japanese adults are considered obese, the U.N. says.

The horizon is very much bigger -and roaring up fast : 3 yr's too go - to finish it
It's dependent if this Country wishes too remain a Sovereign
Secure Independent NATION : Secure defined, Boarder's, and a Secure Economy with Ownership of resources. FREEDOM

It is collapsing and being driven with intention

Democracy " Is Not " Liberty, Egypt is example and the activity.

They used the P.C. term of Democracy " VOTE " and Filled Liberty with Socialism with a Dictator to OVER COME A FREE NATION - Their boarder's collapsed and it was filled.

"Removed" Inalienable Right's" of "We the People" = Liberty
Re : Protests in the million's : Never like anything on the GLOBE

Will this Nation Defend it's boarder's ? No. Has the collapse of the boarder yielded > Insecurity ??? Yes

The Future ?? Look how fast it is changing----

As a Nation we have lost Sovereignty of Ownership to Others - that do NOT have OWNERSHIP but are ENTITLED to It's Resources
