In this day and age, Obesity is fast becoming a common word. Thus it may not come as a surprising fact that it is a rising epidemic proportion in India. Apparently, 5% of the country’s population is affected by morbid obesity. It hasn’t reached the terrible proportions of the other developed countries but is well on its way. Unhealthy, junk food is today the easy option for many than it was a few decades ago, further fuelling the number of obese/overweight people.
This alarming piece of information is based on the data from the 2007 National Family Health Survey, below is the percentage of people who are overweight or obese in Andhra Pradesh:
|State||Male %||Male Rank||Female %||Female Rank|
*The rank suggests the standing in comparison to the male and female obese/oveweight percentage in each of the states.
The data clearly shows that Andhra Pradesh’s position on the Indian map doesn’t look great in terms of the percentage of obese and overweight people.
