If you have read the book “China Study” you’ll read of praise and the awesome positive effects of the overall asian way of eating.
So, what’s happening?
In the West there is some (slow) movement towards dumping our fast / supermarket trash food.
In China, woops, the opposite. For 2012 the following has now been reported;
- 9.2% obesity amongst adults (double that of a decade ago)
- 11.9% overweight adults
- 30.1% of the 6 to 18 year olds are now (2012) obese
It seems the push for the “Western way of life” will bring them the Western evils we only too well know.
