Fat is beautiful! And if John Travolta and Michelle Pfeiffer say so, you absolutely have to believe it ... In defense of plus sizes, Hollywood stars take the field, not just any two types.
The actors, undisputed sex symbols of the 80s, a few years ago were the protagonists of the remake of Hairspray, a historic comedy directed by John Waters that deals with the delicate theme of obesity. And in a world where we do nothing but talk about female models out of the ordinary and absolutely misleading, we all agree with those who say that you can be sexy, fashion and cool even with a few extra pounds. But be careful not to misrepresent the message: obesity is a disease terrible, and as such it must be treated and possibly prevented.
This is well known by the WHO, the World Health Organization, which recently drafted a ranking of the most obese countries in the world.
With the hope of being able to shift the spotlight towards one of the greatest human contradictions (about 3 million people die from diseases related to overweight, over 870 million die of hunger), today we want to offer you an overview of the nations with the most high percentage of inhabitants affected by obesity.
The ranking is based on the percentage of the adult population that has a body mass index higher than the recommended one (BMI, i.e. the ratio between weight expressed in kg and the square of height expressed in meters, as an indirect index of adiposity). To enjoy optimal health, your body mass index (BMI) should be between 18,5 and 24,9 kg / m2.
