外文标题:Indians adding to world obesity problem: Report


LONDON: The general view that obesity is a problem associated with relatively richer Western countries has been turned on its head by a new report which states that middle-income countries like India are now at the heart of a “fat explosion”.

The Overseas Development Institute (ODI), a leading independent think tank, found that Indians form a massive chunk of the one in three adults now overweight or obese, adding up to 1.46 billion across the world.



For its report titled “Future Diets”, London-based ODI selected five middle-income countries – India, China, Egypt, Peru and Thailand – as case studies to illustrate dietary trends in the developing world over the past 50 years.

The analysis revealed that between 1980 and 2008, those affected in the developing world by obesity had tripled, from 250 million to 904 million.

The percentage of obese and overweight in India rose from about 9 per cent of the population in 1980 to 11 per cent in 2008.




“India’s consumption of animal products is approaching that of China’s in terms of its contribution to the average plate, but here the increase is almost entirely in milk consumption, with only limited increases for meat,” the report said.

“Many Indians are vegetarian, avoiding beef or pork for cultural and religious reasons. The consumption of pulses remains relatively high in India, although it has been on the decline.”

Blame Pizza, burgers and other fast foods.


Amit Thackeray (Bhayya Hunter)
The problem is indian wives. After marriage they become fat and make their husbands fat too by making food fatty with lot of ghee in food. Even after telling many times they still put ghee on parathas and sabjis. These fat women are often a problem on airports where you need to walk fast to catch the airplane. Often these women are lazy and refuse to work when in US or Europe and behave like pets, contributing to the the health and social system of the country they illegally infiltrate inside. Countries should take strict measures to fight obese people from India.

India is only adding. Every 5th person above 20 in US is obese. It is a problem in most industrialized countries. It comes with consumption of processed and genetically altered food.

    • 当你在机场快步赶飞机时,这些胖女人会是个障碍。


  1. 三哥,你能否正视自己的问题,不要把所有的责任都推别人的身上!!恐怖袭击怪巴基斯坦,国内叛乱怪中国,现在肥胖问题怪西方的垃圾食品,靠!

  2. 中国每年生产8000多万吨肉食,这还是好几年前的数据了。印度每年才500万吨,这叫印度的人均动物产品消费量接近中国?

    • 跟白皮猪你能较真吗?三猪们那点收入,还号称高储蓄率,消费驱动的市场呢,这个我是从来没搞明白,1年1千多美金的GDP,除掉穿衣吃饭,物价又不低,还到哪里弄钱高储蓄率.一年qq卖个300万辆,什么消费驱动了他们健康发展.

  3. 身体摄取热量比输出热量多,致使肥胖。侧面证明一个国家的生活水平得到改善,消费力增加或工业化初见成效。 🙄

  4. 恭喜三哥了:你们在另一个方面超越了中国!加油! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
    胖兔子的体重比起胖三姐还有很大的差距 :mrgreen:

  7. 昨天看完旅游卫视的 2013行者有胆你就来印度 我被震精了 一个落后到你无法想象的地步的国家 推荐大家看下 这就是所谓民主自由的超级大国 印度人真被洗脑了 🙁

  8. 真是奇怪,是不是阿三的人种有些特别。据说阿三越是吃得越素的人的种族等级越高,难道胖的人都是吃荤腥的贱民?

  9. 阿三的食物和屎一样,看着就恶心 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈

  10. 印度黑鬼和棒子拥有同样的传统,棒子认为尊主国什么好东西都是他们发明的,而印度黑鬼认为凡是对自己不利的那些东西都是别人的责任!
