Obesity Crown in Peril

An obesity flash from McClatchy Newspapers:

MEXICO CITY ó Fueled by the rising popularity of soft drinks and fast-food restaurants, Mexico has become the second fattest nation in the world. Mexican health officials say it could surpass the U.S. as the most obese country within 10 years if trends continue.

More than 71 percent of Mexican women and 66 percent of Mexican men are overweight, according to the latest national surveys.

Isnít there anything left for us to be number one in? Oh, yeah. Prisons.
