America Is The Fattest Nation In The World And Getting Fatter

According to the Daily, the North American continent has more than one third of the world’s population’s body weight, despite being home to less than ten percent of the worlds people.

Much of that weight is here in America. If everybody in the world weighed as much as the average American, farmers and food producers would have to up production twenty percent to feed the equivalent of nine hundred million extra people, and there are fears that food could run out and people could starve.

While America is the fattest nation in the world, Asia for example is home to sixty percent of the world’s population, but just thirteen percent of it’s weight. Another example would be  Bangladesh, home to the lightest people in the world. To weigh in at one ton would require twelve Americans standing on a scale. It would take twenty Bangladesh people to equal the same one ton.
