WHERE VACATIONS START!
Obesity is fast becoming the biggest health threat worldwide. The U.S. leads the pack of the developed countries with every third U.S. citizen being seriously (20% or more) overweight. By comparison, in Canada every 4th citizen is overweight and in Switzerland, only one in six has a pot belly.
Up for debate: Why?
- lack of exercise ("couch potato" lifestyle),
- diet (excessive indulgence in McDo's, KFC, Coca Cola)
- a combination of the above?
