In China the obesity rates have hit the peak due to imports of cheap meat products, and soy and palm-based oils. "The health profile of China is being transformed in front of our eyes and it's an agricultural food-led imposition of huge health problems," he said.

Pakistan, India and several South Pacific countries are also battling such a problem, he said.
