STUDY: 70 PERCENT OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION REMAINS THIN

imageLondon, Great Britain (The Adobo Chronicles) –  Almost a third of the world is now fat, and no country has been able to curb obesity rates in the last three decades, according to a new global analysis.

Researchers found more than 2 billion people – or 3o percent of the world’s population – are now overweight or obese. “It’s pretty grim,” said Christopher Murray of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, who led the study. He and colleagues reviewed more than 1,700 studies covering 188 countries from 1980 to 2013. “When we realized that not a single country has had a significant decline in obesity, that tells you how hard a challenge this is.”

The good news is that 7o percent of the world’s population is still thin. Murray said there was a strong link between income and obesity; as people get richer, their waistlines also tend to start bulging.

The study then concluded that in order to maintain the “thin-ness” of the world’s population, governments and private employers need to keep incomes low.

The new report was paid for by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and published online Thursday in the journal, Lancet.

Good news for the world’s low-income population!

U.S. GOVERNMENT: “DIET WATER ESSENTIAL TO HEALTH AND NUTRITION”

diet-water-12066Washington, D.C. – Every 5 years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) jointly issue “Dietary Guidelines for Americans,” aimed at providing authoritative advice about consuming fewer calories, making informed food choices, and being physically active to attain and maintain a healthy weight, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and promote overall health.

The latest edition of the guidelines came out in 2010.  A year later, the USDA and HHS revised what Americans have always been taught about nutrition through the “food pyramid,” replacing it with the “food plate.”  Largely based on the 2010 guidelines, the food plate focuses on food groups and portions of each group as part of a healthy diet.  One-half of the plate consists of vegetables and fruits, and a quarter each of proteins, grains and dairy. 225x180_my_plate_usda

Today, the USDA and HHS presented a preview of the next guidelines that will be released in 2015.  They pretty much are the same as the 2010 guidelines except for the addition of diet water.  Government researchers have concluded that diet water is essential for good nutrition.

Over the years, millions of Americans have turned to bottled water as part of their daily nutritional intake, thinking that bottled water greatly contributes to a healthy diet. “However, Americans have been drinking the wrong kind of bottled water,” the USDA and HHS pointed out.  “They should be drinking diet water instead.”

“Americans should follow the example of the Japanese,” HHS said. “They are among the healthiest people in the world, living up to their centenarian years. This is because of the healthy foods they eat and the diet water they drink.”

So far, diet water is produced and bottled only in Japan, but other countries have begun to establish diet water plants in anticipation of a surge in demand, especially upon learning of the impending 2015 Dietary Guidelines from the U.S. government.
