“Global Obesity Rise Puts UN Goals on Diet-Related Diseases ‘Beyond Reach’

The fight against the global obesity epidemic is a spectacular failure. At the UN summit in 2011 they set the embarrassingly modest goal for 2025 of “not increasing” obesity any more beyond the record-high 2010 levels.

It’s now clear this fight is heading towards disaster. Based on the current trend the 2010 level of 11.5% global adult obesity has already hit 13% and is going to hit 17% by 2025 – or almost 1 billion people.

So what can we do? It’s clear that the Coca-Cola-funded focus on physical activity and fixation on calories is simply not working. Instead of focusing on the quantity of food we need to put the main focus on the quality of our food.

Drinking soda and regularly eating Western food full of refined carbs leads to obesity. Adding some exercise is not going to stop that any more than it can stop people from getting lung cancer from smoking.
