    It`s because all the fast, skinny Mexicans made it over the border and the fat ones weren`t fast enough.

    HOLY 5H17, Syria is in the midst of a Civil War and somehow they`re ranked THIRD at .2% points below US?

    What a world we live in!

    Yeah, you know there were all those wild speculations about how the world was going to run out food and all that kind of sh*t?

    Turns out the problem is currently distribution and political red tape, not quantity. Difference in culture is a strong contributor (like no one wants our gen-modded, steroided produce and meat.)

    @CodeJockey:

    I`d thought it be a lot lower though, course presumptions tend be off don`t they?

    @Cajun247 and @CodeJockey: At least 20% and some say 1/3rd of the world`s food supply is eaten by rats and mice each year as well.

    4.5% in Japan? Imagine what it must be like in N. Korea

    God I wish they would do away with the BMI index. According to that wacked out scale I am obese but i`ve lifted heavily and worked out for a very very long time (more than I care to admit) and while I have put on some pounds as i`ve aged I am far from fat. I have pretty broad shoulders and a lot of muscle but when using my weight and height on the BMI chart I come out as obese. What kills me is doctors know this. They will tell you this themselves but for some reason we stick to it.

    I hear a new, recurring segment:
    "Mexico, this is why you`re fat"

    And the jubilant tone of the article is somewhat misplaced. USA didn`t do anything, they stayed obese. It is Mexico who became fatter. So, nice try, Yanks! ;-)
