Let’s fight this flab club!

I HAVE joined the flab company. According to a 2020 Health Ministry study, 54.2% of Malaysian adults are estimated to be overweight or obese. I am one of them.

If that’s not bad enough, that’s a 4% increase over the findings of the National Health and Morbidity Survey (NHMS) in 2019, which showed 50.1% of Malaysian adults were too heavy. Of this, 30.4% were categorised as overweight and 19.7% as obese.
