Answer #10

Thank you for the link.

Answer #11

The other link showed us at number 9, but here we are number one.

Answer #12

Both links define obesity as BMI over 30, but the link I posted includes people ages 15 and higher. I’m not sure about the age classification in this one, it might just be the population overall. Also, this link is from the OECD with data from 2002-3. The other one, which has the U.S. at #9, is from the WHO, with data from 2007.

It was interesting to me to note that China’s obesity rate has tripled since 1992. Obesity is tied to culture and diet, but it’s also tied to economic success!

Answer #13

Sadly, yes.
