Wanna know where the money from your new toaster/microwave/stereo system/PDA is ending up? Well…..according to this report, 200 million Chinese are now officially classed as obese. Welcome to the Western world disease peeps, we sympathise.
‘More than 160 million Chinese have high blood pressure and 20 million suffer from diabetes, the ministry said. Those rates and other obesity-related ills are rising. Chinese waistlines have swelled as the nation has shifted to more sedentary work over the past two decades and a populace whose parents survived repeated famines could afford a fattier diet.’
