America is the fattest country in the world. it has a ratio of 1:3 people are fat. This is probably caused to the lack of exercise and the demand for fast food, or people have depression or are heart-broken and look to food for comfort. On the other hand Japan has the least obesity in developed countries with only 3% obesity due to everything being so close that people walk or run to work, people have a diet of mainly of lean food like rice, seafood (they eat most of the worlds seafood),and eat many healthy vegetables

Japan has a 22% obesity rate.
