Think I might have to stop by McDonald’s actually & then Walmart just to celebrate.
As the tables have now turned, Qatar it seems…is now the bigger boy on the block. Per capita speaking mind you. However, stats include that with a national population of approximately 1.7 million half of the adults are now considered obese and 17% of the overall population are diabetic. Broken down into which of the types is anyone’s guess, but I’m sure it could be found.
By comparison America, which is often assumed to be the fattest, looks positively slim with a third of adults obese and eight per cent diabetic.
Out of a population of 1.7million, just 250,000 are native Qataris, who, in the space of just two generations have switched from a tribal existence to living in air conditioned villas being waited on by armies of servants.
The Qataris are a little derelict over this whole notion and continue eating double downs with the Arabian twist of course. Hmm, what on Earth would that be? To go with that main course is a side of birth defects and mutant one eyed purple people eaters due to close “relational inter-marriages.” Ew. Unfortunately, money can’t buy one’s way out of a cyclops. And the Qatari people are slowly discovering that fact:
Sharoud Al-Jundi Matthis, the program manager at the Qatar Diabetes Association, said: ‘It’s a very, very serious problem facing the future of Qatar.
‘They’re concentrating the gene pool, and at the same time, they’re facing rapid affluence.
Adel Al-Sharshani, 39, who was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, said: ‘Everybody in Qatar knows about diabetes, but the problem is, it’s talking only. No one is taking care of it.
So then, after Walmart I’m driving my @ss to them gym. In honor of the world’s now fattest nation…Qatar!
Yay America high five! *Borat Voice*
