I was sitting in my PDHPE class listening to my teacher drone on about Epidemiology when i heard him mention we where now the fattest country in the world (the people) -
Take THAT America!
I googled this and got a link for some proof:
http://www.health-fitness.com.au/australia-now-fattest-country-in-the-world/


EDIT:

After further research, turns out the internet can be quite misleading (massive surprise there), so here's the list of the fattest countries in the world (I'm hoping one of the mods will change the title to 'Fattest countries in the world')

Rank Country %
1. Nauru 94.5
2. Micronesia, Federated States of 91.1
3. Cook Islands 90.9
4. Tonga 90.8
5. Niue 81.7
6. Samoa 80.4
7. Palau 78.4
8. Kuwait 74.2
9. United States 74.1
10. Kiribati 73.6
11. Dominica 71.0
12. Barbados 69.7
13. Argentina 69.4
14. Egypt 69.4
15. Malta 68.7
16. Greece 68.5
17. New Zealand 68.4

22. Belarus 66.8
23. Chile 65.3
24. Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of) 65.2
25. Seychelles 64.6
26. Bahrain 64.1
27. Andorra 63.8
28. United Kingdom 63.8
29. Saudi Arabia 63.5
30. Monaco 62.4
31. Bolivia 62.2
32. San Marino 62.1
33. Guatemala 61.2
34. Mongolia 61.2
35. Canada 61.1
36. Qatar 61.0

Um, isnt that per capita??

Technically, by percentage, Australia has the most, take into consideration that america has 15x the population we do...
