South Africa has the highest overweight and obesity rate in sub-Saharan Africa: 7 out of 10 women and 4 out of 10 men have significantly more body fat than what is deemed healthy, according to a ground-breaking new study in the medical journal. It has been noted that the rise in global obesity rates over the past three decades “has been rapid, substantial and widespread, presenting a major public epidemic in both developed and developing world”. Of the 70% of overweight South African women, 42 % are obese.
We should be striving for a healthier society free of life threatening diseases. It is important to fight obesity because it is causing a new generation with unhealthy lifestyle.
