“It was recently reported that the obesity level of people living in Kuwait has reached 42 percent. Apparently, 65 percent of people in Kuwait do not practice or engage in any form of physical activity and 53 percent of young people send over three hours in front of the television. It seems like the numbers are getting worst every year, but the reaction stays the same.
The only people that seem to be worried about the ever growing waistlines in this country are healthcare professionals. We keep getting informed of the many diseases that accompany obesity such as diabetes, heart disease and strokes, but no one seems afraid. The cause of obesity is also not being addressed. Yes, we know that not enough exercise is one of the main causes of being overweight, but what about all the fast food options on the streets of Kuwait.”
