Will Sweden soon be the slimmest country in the Western world?
PS: Japan and Korea has a lower percentage of obese people (measured as BMI>30) than the rest of the countries in the chart above. I removed them as BMI isn’t a good comparison between mostly Caucasian and Asian populations.
Asians are (on average) of a slimmer build with less muscular limbs. They get truncal obesity and obesity-related diseases (e.g. diabetes) at lower BMI levels. The comparison thus isn’t really fair.
