5 Fattest Countries in the World, Percentage of Obese Adults.

Oh No!  American Women are the Fattest People on Earth.

The news is just bad, bad, bad. America is the most obese nation in the entire world.  38% of Americans over the age of 15 are obese, which is defined as a body mass index of 30 or more.  When you separate that number, American women are more obese than men. 40% of female adults are obese.  This according to an updated survey from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Thirty-five percent of American men are obese.  
Furthermore, the OECD projected things will get worse, not better.  They predict by the year 2030, 50% of American adults will be obese.  
Interestingly, obesity rates are directly tied to poor education.  That is to say, the more education a person has, the less likely they are to be obese.
