The obesity rate for American adults (aged 15 and over) came in at a whopping 38.2%, which puts the birthplace of the Hamburger and the Donuts at the top of the heftiest-nations-in-the-world rankings, according to an updated survey from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. At second place is our border pal Mexico, with 32.4% of population considered obese, followed by New Zealand, Hungary and Australia.
The skinniest nations are Japan, with a tiny 3.7% of the population tipping the scales, followed by India, Korea, Indonesia and China. And across much of Europe, less than 20% of the population can be considered obese, according to the survey released by the OECD.
