According to World Health Organization, in 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults (18 years and older) were overweight, and of these over 600 million were obese. Additionally, about 13% of the world’s adult population (11% of men and 15% of women) were obese and 39% of adults aged 18 years and over (38% of men and 40% of women) were overweight.
