The most "fat" country in the world - it is the Republic of Kiribati

The dubious honor of wearing the title of the "thick" of the world, as it turns out, does not belong to the United States and Pacific States Republic of Kiribati, located in Micronesia and Polynesia.

The entire population of this country - only about 100 000 people and of these 81, 5% are overweight. This is due to the fact that produce their own food costs Kiribati is much more expensive than imported cheap (and unprofitable) products from the West, such as the processed fatty lamb. Own farming in Kiribati severely limited by small size of the state, so that, apart from fish harvested for export, there is simply nothing to eat.

However, Americans should not worry, Kiribati only takes 2nd place in the top 10 most "fat" around the world. The first place of this rating belongs to American Samoa, however, is not a country but an unorganized and not included in the US territory in the South Pacific. Here, the percentage of "fat" of the population - 93, 5%. And in third place are - who do you think? - Of course, the United States (66, 7%).
