Malaysia Boleh!!

Fat Nation: Can Malaysians stomach this?
By Annie Freeda Cruez and Anita GloryNST 29 September, 2006 KUALA LUMPUR: There is too much fat in the Malaysian waist. But that’s not the frightening part. This is: Malaysia has the most number of fat people in the Asean region. In fact, the number of fat people here exceeds that in many developed countries, including Germany and France.In the last 10 years, the number of fat people has more than doubled, resulting in more Malaysians falling ill and diseases such as hypertension and diabetes shooting up. A survey shows that 54 per cent of the adult population is either obese or overweight. Ten years ago, it was only 24.1 per cent.The MySoN (Malaysian Shape of the Nation) survey also shows that 48 per cent of Malaysian men and 62 per cent of Malaysian women are fat. By contrast, in Singapore, about 24 per cent of men and 48 per cent of women are fat. Only eight per cent of men and 13 per cent of the French are fat.The reason why Malaysia is a fat nation, according to Dr Robaayah, is the good life and unhealthy lifestyle. Among these, she said, were eating too much, especially fast food and carbonated drinks; the preference for lifts and escalators to staircases; and little or no exercise.The MySoN survey, the first of its kind in the country, was initiated by Sanofi-Aventis.
