Study of Vanuatu Further Identifies Behaviors That Cause Obesity

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

New research on obesity among the inhabitants of Vanuatu, a nation located on an archipelago near Australia has taken a further look at the behaviors that lead to obesity. The abstract of the study - which is entitled "Behavioral risk factors for obesity during health transition in Vanuatu, South Pacific" can be found in the database on the website of the National Institutes of Health. The study was led by Kelsey Dancause of McGill Univeristy in Toronto. What this study found was that as a country's economy develops infectious diseases become less common, but chronic diseases such as obesity become more prevalent among the population. According to the abstract, a major factor in the increase in obesity rates is the consumption of Western foods, which cause increases in obesity even if they are consumed in modest amounts.

This research is another indication of the increasing problem of obesity around the world. Recently, the United States lost the title of the world's most obese nation when its obesity rate was surpassed by Mexico. The obesity problem in Mexico is described in an article on CBS News entitled "Mexico takes title of "most obese" from America," which was published on July 8, 2013. According to the article, many of the Mexican citizens who are affected by obesity are from the poorer segments of the population, despite the fact that many of them also suffer from malnutrition. The article quotes Abelardo Avila, a researcher from the Mexican National Nutrition Institute as saying that "The same people who are malnourished are the ones who are becoming obese."

This research shows that the problem of obesity is by no means unique to the United States. It is particularly troubling that the US lost its top obesity ranking not because Americans are becoming less overweight, but rather because people in other countries are becoming more obese. It is clear that the challenge of obesity will remain with societies around the world for the foreseeable future. is offering a summer sale of PhenObestin 37.5 to enable those affected by the growing international obesity epidemic to take action to improve their health.
