from By Jessica Taylor
Since 1980, the number of obese people has doubled worldwide and is continuing to rise, according to new research. The study, published recently in the New England Journal of Medicine, stated that about one-third of the global population is overweight and 1 in 10 people are obese. "Excess body weight is one of the most challenging public health problems of our time, affecting nearly 1 in every 3 people," lead author Dr. Ashkan Afshin said.
