    Andorra with a population of just over 78 000 had the best rates with 10 6 of adult men and 7 2 of women classified as obese Study leader Professor Emmanuela Gakidou from the University of Washington US said Unlike other major global health risks such as tobacco and childhood nutrition obesity is not decreasing worldwide Our findings show that increases in the prevalence of obesity have been substantial widespread and have arisen over a short time However there is some evidence of a plateau in adult obesity rates that provides some hope that the epidemic might have peaked in some developed countries and that populations in other countries might not reach the very high rates of more than 40 reported in some developing countries She added Our analysis suggests that the UN s target to stop the rise in obesity by 2025 is very ambitious and is unlikely to be achieved without concerted action and further research to assess the effect of population wide interventions and how to effectively translate that knowledge into national obesity control programmes In particular urgent global leadership is needed to help low and middle income countries intervene to reduce excessive calorie intake physical inactivity and active promotion of food consumption by industry Other key findings include In the developed world men have higher rates of obesity than women while in developing countries the opposite is true The greatest increase in rates of excess weight and obesity occurred between 1992 and 2002 mainly among people aged 20 to 40 On the Pacific island of Tonga more than half the population of both men and women is obese In the western European region which includes Israel obesity levels among boys range from 13 9 in Israel and 12 9 in Malta to just over 4 in the Netherlands and Sweden Definitions of overweight and obese are based on BMI which is obtained by dividing a person s weight in kilograms by their height in metres squared A BMI of 25 to 29 is considered overweight while 30 and above is classified as obese Commenting on the findings Professor Klim McPherson from Oxford University wrote in The Lancet An appropriate rebalancing of the primal needs of humans with food availability is essential which would entail curtailing many aspects of production and marketing for food industries To prevent unsustainable health consequences BMI needs to return to what it was 30 years ago Research had shown that reducing BMI to 1980 levels in the UK would require an 8 reduction in consumption across the country costing the food industry roughly 8 7bn per year Prof McPherson added The solution has to be mainly political and the questions remain as with climate change where is the international will to act decisively in a way that might restrict economic growth in a competitive world for the public s health Nowhere yet but voluntary salt reduction might be setting a more achievable trend Politicians can no longer hide behind ignorance or confusion

    feel about others How we are able to meet the demands of life There may be some confusion in people s minds as to the difference between mental ill health and mental illness Mental ill health refers to the kind of general mental health problems we can all experience in certain stressful circumstances for example work pressures can cause us to experience poor concentration mood swings and sleep disturbance Such problems are usually of temporary nature are relative to the demands a particular situation makes on us and generally respond to support and reassurance All of us suffer from mental health problems at times and such temporary problems do not necessarily lead to mental illness However being mentally unhealthy limits our potential as human beings and may lead to more serious problems Mental illness can be defined as the experiencing of severe and distressing psychological symptoms to the extent that normal functioning is seriously impaired Importance of Health Living a Healthier Life Mental Health benefits body health Search for Popular Latest Mental Health Ireland May 10 2014 Obesity Levels January 07 2015 Irish Heart Foundation Revels May 07 2015 New public awareness campaign on Folic Acid July 20 2015 When
