America is no longer the fattest country in the world!

Quote
America has lost its cholesterol-soaked crown as the fattest populous nation and is now trailing Mexico when it comes to adult obesity rates. More than 70 percent of Mexican adults are overweight, and one-third of teens there have weight problems as well.

Thanks, Obama!

Don't you mean, Thanks Michelle Obama?
Mexico, USA and Canada probably rank 1, 2 and 3. Maybe it's all that corn...

I consider this a small step forward.  Very small, awkward steps...

Would have been good news if it meant Americans were getting thinner, but as I read it Mexicans are just porking up faster than we are.

well someone has to be wrong,that is from the United Nations report,while this one is from the World Health Organization,sure its from 6 years ago,but are you saying America jumped up 9 places to number 1 and then dropped 1 place to number 2 while Mexico jumped up 19 places,all this happening while the the top countries all lost a lot of percentage in 6 years??

which is probably right as 6 years ago it was reported as 68.1%,but doesn't account for the rest of the top countries changing
