This is why when people say, “Australia is the fattest nation on earth” I chortle in their faces.
Salient bit: “The World Health Organization (O’Hara, 2006) data on “obesity” in adults indicate that the United States ranks twentieth, Australia thirty-fifth, and Canada thirty-seventh in global rates of “obesity”.” (The Fat Studies Reader by Sandra Solovay and Esther Rothblum, p 1.)
Getting your “facts” from a morning television advertorial is not acceptable and bloody lazy. Those people are trying to SELL shit to you.
This is true, when I went to Vanuatu there are a lot of women who were way larger than me - and they were happy! The men aren’t really fat but if I had to work hard every day in that tropical heat I’d be thin too…and they like they’re women curvy (and fertile but let’s not go there…)
I’d love to live in Samoa or Vanuatu…
