ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the statistics related to obesity. A look at International Obesity Taskforce figures on global overweight and obesity suggests it might be. The three countries found to have the highest percentage of statistically obese men are Nauru (80% of males have a body-mass index of 30-plus), Tonga (46.6%) and Cook Islands (39.6%). Germany which is ranked a healthy six for GDP and with 22% of its men in the obese range, appears to be making a late run to win at both ends of the scales. The standard drink here is served in a 2L glass and the best-seller is a 5L Bacardi and Coke.
