America loses out to Kuwait, which now can claim the distinction as the country with the greatest number of obese people. Not far behind are the neighboring Gulf States of Bahrain, Qatar, and the UAE. And of course, we must not forget Gaza and the West Bank, where women boast the 3rd highest obesity rate in the world.
QUICK! Call the White House, this sounds like a job for Moochelle Obama. According to the World Health Organization 74% of Kuwait’s population is overweight. Thanks to America saving their oil fields from Saddam Hussein, increasingly, the Kuwaitis are cooking less, working less, and and eating more fast food. I guess you could say that in Kuwait, food is king…BURGER King!
