真/CURIOSO : MALAYSIA AND OBESITY

超重?肥胖?在馬來西亞,男人佔45%;女人則幾乎接近一半。根據一則英國醫學雜誌Lancet的研究,相比全球的比率大約佔30%。在東南亞,馬來西亞是最多人肥胖的國家。馬來西亞的食物及衛生署長也提及該國正面臨一種疫症 “肥胖症”。為什麼?原因是因為該國的人民愛吃濃濃的咖哩、多汁的炸雞、奶油類的麵包及飲料。

45%. The percentage of Malaysian men who are overweight or obese. Almost half of women are also overweight or obese, according to a study by UK medical journal Lancet, compared to global rates of around 30 per cent. Malaysia is South East Asia’s fattest country and its health minister says the nation is facing “an obesity epidemic.” That’s due to a national love affair with rich curries, succulent fried chicken, buttery breads and creamy drinks.
