An unfit nation
A report shows that 2/3 of adult Canadians are overweight or obese and 1/4 of children are too. In Canada the number of women have abdominal obesity increased 26% since 1981, and the number of men increased by 23% since 1981. The dangerously large waists went to 21 per cent from five per cent among men from 1981,and to 31 per cent from six per cent among women.the average waist has increased in 10 centimeters which is 4 inches. Among children 15-19 the percentage that have a waist circumference that is "increased or high risk of health problems" has tippled. All this is crazy,and i think that Canadians should think about what they eat because it does effect there health a lot,and if you do live healthy you will live longer.
