OECD’s report “Obesity and the Economic Prevention” shows that in 1970 14% of the American population suffered from obesity. Yet, in 2010 that number reached 35%. 65% of the American population falls into the category of overweight people. (It seems that Hollywood has documented the lives of all the skinny people.) By comparison in Korea, 4% of the population is obese and 30% is overweight. Read my blog below on school lunches in Korea and compare it to the US.
