Malaysia is Asia’s fattest country


Obesity can lead to serious and potentially life-threatening conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, gall stones, and some cancers like breast, uterine and colon cancer.

Malaysia is Asia’s fattest country with approximately half of the population overweight or obese.

Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being overweight i.e. weighing too much. Both terms mean that a person’s weight is greater than that considered healthy for his or her height.
