Obesity: A Notorious Problem among People of Punjab

The recent National Family Health Survey for Punjab is bittersweet. While Punjab has done wonders to contain the population explosion, and managed to retain the fertility// level at two children per woman, there has not been much progress with the soaring obesity rates. Nearly 38% women and 30% men are obese, the survey has revealed.

The survey, conducted by CRRID in Punjab, studied nearly 3000 households. Gopal Krishan, director Population Research Centre at Centre for Research in Rural and Industrial Development (CRRID), who headed the survey said, 'Punjab has evidently stepped into the third stage of demographic transition, representing a tendency toward global stabilization of population. It is attributed primarily to the rise in adoption rate of family planning from 51 to 56%.'
