Economic slowdown tied to rise in obesity in richer nations -OECD

WASHINGTON, May 27 (Reuters) – The rate of obesity continues
to climb across the world’s most developed countries, with
certain nations and groups of people such as women and the poor
hit harder by the recent economic crisis, the OECD said on
Tuesday.

While rates are rising as much as 3 percent a year in
countries such as Australia, France, Mexico and Switzerland,
they have been fairly stable in other countries such as the
Unites States, Canada, Korea and Italy, the Organisation for
Economic Cooperation and Development said in report.
