ABSTRACT:
Obesity has almost tripled globally since 1975. More than 1.9 billion people aged 18 and up were overweight in 2016. Over 650 million of them were obese. In 2016, 39% of adults aged 18 and up were overweight, with 13% being obese. Overweight and obesity kill more people than underweight in the majority of the world's population. In the year 2019, 38 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese. In 2016, over 340 million children and adolescents aged 5 to 19 years old were overweight or obese. Obesity can be avoided. Currently, India has over 135 million obese people. Until recently, the body mass index (BMI) was used to measure obesity. By 2020, there will be 158 million obese children around the world, rising to 206 million by 2025 and 254 million by 2030. In reality, India will have the most obese children after China, with 27,481,141 or 27 million, well ahead of the United States' 17 million.
